I am wondering how many rods and reels do you set up when bank fishing for cats?
I use 2 poles with 2 hooks each. I believe that it the limit for Illinois. Wish I could use more..lol
When I'm fishing live baits for Flatheads.....I usually set out 6 rods spaced out about 15-20 yards apart and cover a spot about 100 yards long.
When I'm fishing cutbaits for bluecats..I use 2 rods with circle hooks spaced about 10 yards apart. I put my chair in the middle and keep my eyes peeled to my rods.
I dont target channelcats very often!:cool2:
Here you go!Making me jealous again.:wink: We,re still only allowed 2 rods here in Pennsylvania.:sad2:
We're allowed as many as you want in GA, unless you're in a state owned public fishing area where the limit is two. I usually use just two anyway. I guess for me catfishing is a kinda laid-back time and I actually think alot while I'm fishing( don't tell anyone!:roll_eyes, so two rods is about all I can watch while my brain is runnin' through the gears. haha.
I'd love to fish sometime with someone where we could set out about 6 or 7 rods and have some faster action.
Matter of fact though - 2 rods is all I own! ( Other than fly rods for trout. :crazy
Three poles here in Kansas.
Were only allowed 2 poles here on the colorado river... I have kids though and they are allowed 2 each. Run 5 poles lately. 2 live 2 bluegill heads and a channel cat pole to keep the kids busy.
The limit here in Indiana is three poles. I'll put out all three and keep two to three more ready to go on the bank. I like this so if i break off or something happens i can keep three in the water at all times. The CO's really like this cause they say your not allowed more that three with you. I actually talked with one and called the state department about this. They said you are only allowed three in the water at a time, but you can have as many as you want with you.
2 poles 2 hook limit in IOWA also but I have 3-4 layin there ready to bait if I get snagged or broke off I set up and run again(LOL) ya know if they aint in the water you aint gonna catch nuttin (LOL)
Yeah JCY be a dawg too rubbin the salt in deep aint he (LOL) :smile2:
Never have got my head around how some keep up with more that 3.
Must be fishing sober or something?? :wink::smile2:
Most times I will only use 2 and one extra rigged for "other fish" casting opportunities.
If i'm bank fishing, i'll usually use 4 rods, unless the bite is so much that I can't keep up....oooh:
I use 2 rigs 3 at the most
I have three cat rigs, I try fishing all three but only one got most of the bites.
We are only allowed 2 rods here in Ohio...I would use 3 if allowed, but anymore than that seems like to much work.
Here in Illinois if you use over 2 rods, they must have your name and address on them. I only use 2 because that is all I can keep up with and all I want to pack.
I set up 4 with 2 hooks each.
I'll fish one or two in the ground & one by hand
here in va we use as many as we want. i usually use 2. another guy uses 6 or 8 if we have the room for them all.
There's no rod/hook limit here in NC. I will set out 4 rods from the bank at a pond or lake with different baits (livers, shad, crawlers, sometimes crawfish) then fish 2 with whatever they're biting best on. When fishing the river, I only set out 2.
