    They have very large,waxy, almost heart shaped leaves, with 12" or longer beans hanging. The worms aren't on all the trees. I only find them on two or three trees in my area, out of several Catulpa trees. The leaves are usually well eaten with large areas munched away, they will totally strip a small tree. The worms are about 2" and are black and yellow.

    Here's a page I found on the web, about Catalpa Worms and Catfishing. With some tips and good pictures.

    I'm still trying to go today. Its possible I may go tonight after the race and fish all or most of the night. I wanna go now but Regina has the car and won't be back for about an hour. That'll not give much time to fish before the race.
    If not tonight,maybe try for tomorrow or 1 day in the next couple days.

    I just got back from a little outing. I wanted to get home and watch the race. I may go for a while after the race. BTW, I didn't get any bites. Didn't stay long enough. I'll be back on.
