As I said I'm new on here. I've been fishing for cats in the Blanco for the last few months with very little success. I did get one on a fly while fly fishing for smallys once. I joined here and did a few hours of research and went out to the river. I was planning on fishing the day light hours and paddling in to a feeder I set up for pigs and trying to get one after dark. Heres my set up while I was loading up for all the activitys. So I get the feeder baited and head for the big river. I count resist giving some bass a hard time in the creek. Heres a few. I get to the river and see lots of small channel cats roaming but I needed bait so I sat in the mouth of the river and caught small perch with my fly rod. I ended up catching 4 really nice channel cats. The biggest one was 16 inches. I only kept one cause I wasn't sure how they would taste. I head in with a half an hour of light. The pigs were all ready at the feeder so I took a tough shot with my bow and missed. I headed in and cleaned my fish at home. I never cleaned a catfish before but managed. The fish had some nice filets..clean no dirty blood lines. He ate well. I'll be back and next time keep a few more. YUMMY!
