Anyone fish Meldal Dam. Looks like it would be good???
lots of big cats!
What Live for cattin forgot to mention is that if your going, better bring a 3/4 ton pickup so you can bring enough extra tackle and a spare spool or 3 of extra fishing line, fishing the bottom ( from the shore side anyways) is some of the worst snags I EVER fished. I never had a rod on the bottom long enough to catch anything there and gave up after retying every cast. From aboat might be a better way to go but forget the shore fishing!
Good luck and be sure to let us know if you do well down there, I get plenty of Whites, Hybrids, saugers and a few decent bass there in the fall and spring. I never hit the skippies but I know there there at times in large numbers.
That's kind of what I am affraid of. I don't have a boat so.....
the only time I fish there is for bait, the bottom is a nightmare. for catfish
Which one is Meldahl? What town is it near? Ever consider a catbobber or is it too swift?
BAD BAD bottom.its like snag city man.its fun goin there n catchin sauger and i saw sombody pull up a HUGE flatty on the wall before so if i was goin cattin i'd prolly stay on the wall
I have had pretty good luck there at times, but like everyone says you will go through some gear. Mostly caught channels , but a few small blues and flatheads also. Takes a good sized sinker and expect to break off a lot. If you hate to retie alot this is not the place to fish. I haven't fished the ohio side.
have any of ya'll caught any really nice fish there?
I ain't ever done particularly good there. The water seems to fluctuate a ton there. It seems like all it has to do is rain for a few minutes and the low side is going to come up to 30'. It's one of the closest places on the river for me and I usually try to stay away from it.
Well See when i bass fishing they have this thing called a hound dog bait retriver i don't know how well it would work on a cat fishign rig but i know it does good on a carolina rig so you may wanna look that up if you interested
