    How about Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Fishing in the dark. I don't think it actually says catfishing in it but leads you to believe they are catfishing.

    Check out Primus he sings a ton of songs about fishing one is called john the fisherman but all there cds hes sings about fishing les claypool is the best base player of all time to.. he loves to fish.

    Brad Paisley "Im gonna miss her" the whole song is about fishing dont think he says catfish in the lyrics.

    Gotcha covered Dan! I made this up several years ago and I think of my version everytime I hear the original one play somewhere.

    My version rocks, an if it ain't worth a couple rep points then there ain't NO justice in this world! :smile2:

    For you Dan, old school fishing music from one of your BOC brothers,

    Flat Headed Cats! (sung to the tune of Queen's "Fat bottomed Girls"

    ""Are we gonna go me fishn’ t’night ?
    Ah, down beside that red camplight
    Are we gonna set our lines all out ?
    Flat headed cats
    they make my rod ‘n reel go wild!

    Hey I was just a skinny lad
    Never knew no good from bad
    But I knew lakes because I saw ‘em on TV - huh
    had to catch me a big, fat flatty
    Even though the bait smells knatty
    Heap big catfish, you made a real man out of me
    Hey hey!
    Wooh

    ***
    I've been fishin’ with the guys
    Across the water across the bays
    I've caught every blue cat doozy in my way, hey
    But their beauty and their style
    kind of went smooth after while
    Sends me back to flatcat badies everytime!

    C'mon
    Oh won't you take me there tonight ?
    Oh down beside that red camplight
    Oh and we’ll give it all we got
    Flat headed cats you make my
    freakin’ drag go wild!


    Hey listen here
    Took a mortgage t’get my boat
    Got stiffness in ma' bones
    Ain't no beauty queens in this
    locality (I tell you)
    Oh but I still get my pleasure
    Still get my greatest treasure
    Heap big flathead you made
    a bad man out of me.

    Now get this
    Oh (I know) you gonna bend my
    pole tonight? (please!)
    Ah, down beside that red camplight
    Are you gonna strip my line all out ?
    Flat headed cats you’ll screw my
    brand new reel all up!

    Get in the boat and ride!
    Ooh yeah, oh yeah flat headed cats!
    Flat headed cats!
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Alright, cast, c'mon
    Flat headed cats! - yes yes!
    ""

    I bet you'll never hear "Fat Bottomed Girls" by Queen again without thinking about Flatheads, LOL

    Kansas City's own Rainmakers have a song called "Downstream". It's a pretty darn good song, and mentions the Mississippi River and catfish.

    Mine too. I remember many nights sitting on the bank... or jumping in the water to cool off before getting serious about fishing... Love that song, brings back a lot of memories. :big_smile:
