    Just wondering if any of you have caught any gaff tops this year on the coast. I ve gone several times and it seems like they just aren't in the same numbers they were 5 years ago.

    Welcome to the BOC brother. We went saltwater fishing in the middle of the month. Wasn't really looking for cats though. Tell you the truth don't to much care for them either. Smell too bad for me. :0a5: Good Luck

    I have not seen as many in the shrimp nets here as there was a long time ago. Seemed to me every drag we would get 15 to 45 but this year we might get 2 or 3 every other drag.

    Go to Google -- Advanced
    In the top block, enter: catfish
    In the second block, enter: Tampa Bay
    In the third block, enter: gafftopsail gafftop topsail
    Leave the fourth (bottom) block empty

    This should get you over 500 hits, many of which will be about fishing for gafftops in the Tampa Bay area.
