Three trips ONE BITE, one catfish. September 28th. I finally got out in my boat and launch from Schmidt’s ramp. I had the boat in the water by 08:30. I tried 4 different spots had only one bite at the second spot. A small flat head catfish 23 inches and 5pounds swallowed a chunk of thawed Shad. No action at all at the other spots so called it a day at 12:30. The upriver wind and lack of current did cause me problems keeping the rods facing down river. Sept 30: I was fishing my second catfish tournament in 11 years. This was local club that had 13 boats entered for the event. I did learn a lot about drift fishing that day. We did not catch anything. We learned at the weigh in a number of other boats were also skunked as well. I was worn out by the time I got home; I am just not used to fishing from 8 a.m. till 3 p.m. Oct 2nd. I went bank fishing with my brother from 8:30 till 12:30. We had thawed Skipjack, Gizzard Shad and different season chicken breast for bait. Wonderful sunny day, river was in great shape. We had just four light taps but no bites for our efforts. So we packed it in at 12:30 and headed back home. Seems the fishing gods are still against me just can NOT get any action, very depressing. I am just not sure where to take my boat to wet a line.
