I'm curious as to how many of you have caught catfish on lures. I use to live close to a fairly productive river in Kansas. One day while catching white bass my friend hooks a 8lb. blue on a 1/4 oz. roadrunner. I thought it was a 1 in a million catch. Then soon after I hook one on the same jig. I was fishing light line and the fish won. So we upsized everything and that day we brought home a handful of white bass and 3 blues. After that we made it a ritual to fish that same spot the same way. Some days we would be successful with the jigs but most was not. Other than that I have caught a channel on a roostertail and a another friend of mine hooked and landed a 12lb. flathead on a topwater bait while fishing for largemouth. Before I use to believe catfish had bad vision since there eyes are so small. Not anymore!
