the best catfish river in U.S.A.?
My list would have to be headed by the James. One of these days when I get rich and famous i'm gonna fish that river :wink::smile2:.
lower mississippi, hands down.
I love the Ohio River, but my trip to the James was AWESOME!!!!! It has my vote for your chance at a hawg for your time spent!:wink: rollo
That's a tough question but I'm going to say the James
The Altamaha hands down, it takes a few trips to get dialed in but once you have no place better.
If we are talking in the US then the red river gets my vote for channel cats,the flatheads would be a Kansas river,and the blues I'm not sure of,but down south somewhere.
The Ohio and Bigsandy river.
The best Ive ever fished I would have to say the JAMES.
The James River.
As much as I love to fish the Mississippi. For Big Cats im going with the James Hands down. There's a favorite river for each species but for big fish consistently being caught no matter the species the James gets my vote. I have caught a PB of 25LBs or more for Channels twice, 30LBs or more for Flats once and 30-60LBs+ for blues over 15 times and thats only over a span of 5 months and all fish were caught from the bank. :big_smile: Not too mention plenty of monsters that got away :wink: I think you should start a POLL
Whatever river I happen to be on at the time!:wink:
i have to fish the james before i die.:big_smile:
The river is great, I thought a 20LB Cat was a monster and something I'd never see until I got to Va.
For sheer numbers of quality cats the last couple years, i'd have to say the lower Potomac from Washington, D.C. down 30 miles. Catching 10 to 50 blues over 20#'s to 60#+ is very common on any given trip.
To have a chance at a real Pig, then the James, Ohio, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee River would be the place.
Mississippi river at the Melvin Price lock and dam area.
I am going with the Ohio. Where else can you have a chance at a world record of any type of catfish? Some rivers are better flat rivers some are better channel rivers, but where else can you catch a trophy in all three categories in the same day? 100+ blue, 100+ flats 40+ channels ... yea I'm going with the Ohio. I'm sure the Mississippi is up there as well if not even a bit better.
Good rivers fellows,
But cant let the list go :confused2:with out adding the Tenn. River:wink:
There ain't no big cats in the TN River :wink::big_smile:.
I wondering the same thing. I would think the ohio and miss for world record cats.
