    I caught a 1lb channel cat today and when I cleaned her I found seeds in her stomach and intestine. I have never seen that before....the only other thing was a tiny crawfish claw. I will post a pic shortly.

    I have never seen seeds in catfish....but i was trout fishing in south dakota several years back, i was on a small river watching these trout feeding on the surface. i threw nearly everything i had in my fly box at them and they weren't too interested. i did end up catching two 12 inchers, took them back to camp and cleaned them...well both fishs' stomachs were completely filled with these tiny 3/4 inch pinecones....no wonder it took me forever to catch those hungry trout, I HAD NO PINECONE FLIES IN MY BOX:smile2:... so fish do eat some strange things sometimes

    any time you find a fruit tree of any kind droping its fruits in the water channel cats will be there eating them.

    ...and they're getting ripe. Look for grapevines climbing trees along the shorline. Sometimes muscadines are so aromatic, you can smell them before you get there. Plus they make good wine. There's a fellow named Craddock on here that claims he has caught some drunken catfish. He says the fish's breath smells like muscadine wine. :big_smile:
