    Hey Fellas, I just moved to Hernando County after living in the Keys for the last 10 years. Can anyone tell me of some good catfishing in the area?

    Welcome to the BOC! I fish the St. Johns river, Wachiva River, Econ River and lake Monroe.Give these areas a try. They all yield nice channels. We don't have any blues or flats down here. We should get the Florida FWC to stock blues because flats are probably too aggressive. And there isn't much difference between blues and channels any way.
    Hope this helps

    Hi Seth;
    Welcome to "up-here".
    Right now cats are spawning so just about anywhere ya ought to be able to pull some out.
    Softshell turtle season closes Thursday, so they're off the list.
    I like to get out and explore for new places.
    Just got bumped up at work from three days off to only only one day off (4 day work week-to-6 day work week), ugh ! Love the money, but, lose all that fishin time.
    Take care,
    Tight lines,
    Danny

    hate to rain on the perade, but there are blues all the way to miama. a friend of mine has caught them to 32 lbs. they were checked by the dnr and verified to be blues. if you catch a chanel cat count the rays and if there is more than 30 it is a blue. I fish all over the state and half the chanels that I caught were blues. it is very hard to just look at a cat and tell if it is a blue or a chanel.I live in vero beach fl . I fish the stick marsh ,lake blue cypress, miama garci, the lake around kissimmee & st clowd.catch cats out of all of them. go to st of florida and they list the to 10 cat lakes in the state. I catch more cats spec fishing then any other time.
