    went out this weekend on the black and had a blast in all we caught quite a few fish. only two blue cats the rest were flatheads.. caught them mostly shallow but did catch some on inside bend of main river. for you who know what im talking about we went up into birds cove and caught one that was 19.4 and another that was 15. caught a 35.7 lber at raccon island. caught three fish this weekend that was under 5 pounds all the rest were over 9. used nothing but live bream. i had a blast.

    That's a heck of a trip there man! One of these days I'm going to have to get out on the Black River for a catfishing trip. I've bass fished it a few times and it really looks good for cats though.

    well man i dont know how much time you have spent onthe black but let me tell you it aint a very forgiving river to run. theres alot of sunken trees that if you dont know where there at will totally screw you up. i already ripped a transom out of the very first boat i had from trying to learn the river. Now i know about every stump and tree there is and where the sandbars are. but if i was you i would definetly go slow my first 10 times out. as for boat ramp well i see them all the time but most of them are personel. i know there is a public one between atkins and the tradding post. but unless you can tiller your motor way up your big boat may have a few problems. i even have problems when i run my 15 up there because the motor is a long shank. but i have learned how to ride my own wake so i can float over sand bars.

    thought id try and put some pictures up of the cats we been catching out of the black. so far we have caught a 19.9,29, 35.7, 32, and 42.3 pound flathead. all with in the 3 weekends, the 35 pounder came off of rod and reel and the rest off of bush hooks. most of them out of the same cove.

    OutdoorX,
    Just a word of advice, bush hooks and live bait do not mix. In the state of North Carolina that is illegal.

    Pretty sure that was one trip he was talking about in the first post and all those came on rod and reel when he was using the live bream. Those others he didn't specify what he was using.

    Not trying to start no crap but just trying to keep a fellow catfisherman out of trouble.

    blue cat is right i should have specified. that weekend was all rod and reel. the limb lines are baited with the bream that we kill after a night of fishing with lines. perfect size live bream are to hard to catch to be throwing on a bush hook.
