Just wanted to give everyone an update on Saylorville Cats (though I feel Im the only one that catfishes on this reservoir). I grew up on Red Rock and have spots where I could catch 1-20 pound cats all day and never had any luck on Saylorville when I tried. Long story short, Red Rock is just getting to be too far of a drive from West Des Moines while Saylorville is practically in my back yard. So last year I was determined to find the cats on Saylorville. Here are maybe some useful facts about my fishing at Saylorville and whats working for me: Cats are located on the northern end of the reservoir up towards Jester Park in-between 1 and 3 foot of water. I have a fishing pontoon so I can move in under a foot of water to get to these spots. I am trolling at about 1/2 mph with a wireless motor guide. Floating bait under a bobber while trolling. Catching them on whole raw shrimp soaked in Garlic and oil for a couple of days. I never have tried this till this year and Im telling you . this has been a killer combination so far. Think they look a lot like crayfish to the cats. Catching fish between 1 and 15 pounds and missed a 20 pound + one yesterday. Missing a lot of fish on circle hooks, about ready to go back to my kales. Yesterday was so crazy that I had to go down to one pole because I kept catching doubles. Started fishing at 7:30 and ran out of bait at around 1:30 pm (had 20 shrimp). Attached a picture of the average size cats Ive been catching (tuff to hold fish, camera and take a picture while my dog has to lick every fish when its first brought in). J Hope this helps others that maybe fish Saylorville and will provide more updates as the year goes buy. Im on the lake every Friday on most weeks.
