    Hey,

    Me and my dad went out on the Pec a few weeks back. Water was still a little high. Set out some bank poles and a trotline. Caught 13 on about 70 hooks. Still had some live bait in the morning. It was pretty slow. The fish that we did catch were nice channel cats about 7-8 lbs. I think it still needs to come down a few feet before you start catching a lot of fish. My own personal opinion!

    Tight lines,

    AC

    Dad and I went again two weekends ago. This time we caught 21 cats. None smaller than 3 lbs. most between 5 lbs. and 7 lbs. Several still had eggs in them or were spined up. This is the weirdest catfishing I've seen on the Pec since I was a kid. Never seen fish this late that seemed like they were spawning. River down to normal stage, but still roiled up and cloudy with mud. Usually, this time of the year, catfishing slows down and walleyes pick up. River is at least 6 weeks behind, if not 8 weeks.
