    Seems to me cats of all varieties seem to cut back on travel after they reach about 10 lbs. It requires a lot of moving water to make them move a substantial distance. (A couple of miles) Whats your thoughts ?

    I have noticed that all the cats over 10 pounds , are always on the other side of the lake.

    I think that Blues and Flatheads move much more than most believe.

    I think they move a heck of a lot more then they do when little. I don't see a few miles as a big problem for them.

    Yea I think most of the big fish just set on the bottom of the water and just eat off the bottoms

    several yrs back, marine bioligists shocked some flatheads hear by yuma and tagged them. then followed them as they moved. i was told they went quite a few miles upriver that day in boat following them.

    I THINK THEY WILL MOVE ALONG WITH THERE FOOD SOURCE.SHAD DON'T STAY IN ONE AREA YEAR ROUND. SO THEY MUST MOVE WITH THE MIGRATION OR STARVE.

    I think catfish have seasonal homes to coincide with water temps, spawning,etc. They may travel several miles to find thier spots, but hang pretty close to home during that season.
