I had a group of guys that came down for a blue catfish vacation from Minnesota and Iowa. The shallow water blue catfish bite was unreal!!! The first day we caught them in 1-3 ft of water on fresh cut shad. That night we got a really good rain and the lake came up about 2 feet overnight. That mean game on in the flooded weeds and grass. We’d through up in pockets and the rods would slam down with good sized blue catfish. We threw in a bonus trip for hybrid striper just for the fun of it on Skiatook Lake in Oklahoma. It only took a short time to fill their limits. Lots of doubles and triples for both blue catfish at Keystone Lake and hybrid striper at Skiatook Lake! They decided to book 3 days next year at the same time.
