Blue Catfish on Grand Lake in Oklahoma
Another great day dodging the rain fishing for blue catfish on Grand Lake in Oklahoma! Larry, Iris and Alyssa, it was a pleasure as always to have you on another guided fishing trip.
We had to delay our start a couple of hours, but that didn’t matter because the fish bit all day long. The temperature was really nice for August in Oklahoma (high of 82 I believe). We all wore jackets most of the morning. We managed to catch all three species of catfish two days in a row, blue catfish, channel catfish, and flathead catfish!
Large gizzard shad dragging at .6-.8mph was the key in 22-38ft of water. If you don’t have a trolling motor to drag with, you can kick the boat sideways to the wind and control your speed with drift socks. I use about 3 ounces of weight most of the time when fishing on Grand Lake.
If you’d like to book a guided fishing trip on Grand Lake or another lake in Oklahoma give me a call.
