The story of three catfish



(Dalien story) Today water was rising due to heavy rain yesterday and today. Rising stained water is no1 signal for heavy feeding action of catfish. Anyway, there is one place and pattern I discovered. Fishing on the drop in a slack water between main and back current  with the stand up jig head and a grub. Cast it out, wait to sink and be prepared for a strike, reel back and cast out again. The catfish strike exclusively on the drop, and today I discovered they like the SG LB grub very much since I had three catfish on the end of my line in three consecutive casts.

The first came on my light tackle and it was gone before the fight even began.
I went back to car to get my heavier gear, and took SG Boner,30 LB Power pro braid and okuma 40 raw. On the next cast I had a  strike on the drop. I got the fish fairly close to the bank quick, but then a brutal 80 metar run with no stop followed as if it realized it was hooked just then. Boner leveled with the water and smooth sound of okuma raw drag still echo in my memory. The gear was put to the maximum stress and  fish showed no signs of tiring out I think the gear held pretty well, Im especially pleased with the okuma raw drag. My line broke due to heavy curent and lot of line in the water.

I sat for a while and regained my composure. On the next cast-baaam..another one struck on the drop! This one just swam in the middle of the water column...nor he wanted to go away, nor I could drag him closer..it came un buttoned after two or three minutes...what a power. I ve caught catfish up to 20 kilos, but this was something else...I think they are stacked up due to the spawn....

Brutal day that proved SG LB 10 cm Grub in lemon fluo as the serious catfish bait, and Okuma Raw as reel that can match even the biggest freshwater gamefish...
