I haven't been catfishing much lately and after the reports on the lower end I didn't have high hopes of catching much in the shallower Long Island area. I was taking a friend who was visiting from Arkansas to show him how to troll for cats. We ended up with 8 blues up to 7lbs, one small flathead, and one channel using frozen gizzard shad and skip jack. Also a largemouth, two small stripers, and about a dozen white perch on jigging spoons. No monsters but plenty of action. My friend is now looking forward to trying the technique at the original home of the Arkansas blue!
