with the colder water temps the catfish will be stacking up for the winter last time i was down at lake of the ozarks a few days ago they went from 49 to 45 degrees in 3 days . bait was very easy to find and bunched up tight in around 12 to 18 foot of water . the catfishing was about average for me and scatterd some what still but will get better and better from here on out . In 2 days we caught over 300 lbs of blue cats and about 5 channel cats biggest blue was a tad over 30 lbs but several in the 8 to 20 lb range and smaller .. who else is ready for some winter blue cat fishing ???? woooo hoooooo whats the water temps now on the lakes or rivers you fish ??? .
