    Has anybody been fishing the fear lately? If so how are the cats biting and on what?

    A friend of mine went out this past Tuesday night in the Fayetteville section and he caught 9 cats. All of them were Blues with the biggest being around 20 lbs. He was catching them on a mix of eel, brim, and catfish fillets. I went out this past Wednesday night and fished the Fayetteville stretch and caught 8. All of them were Blues with the biggest being 19lbs. The eight fish totaled 88lbs. The fishing this past week was pretty darn good on the river. Hopefully it holds out the same for the next two weekends. Good luck.
