Grand Lake Blue Catfish Channel Catfish
Our good friends and customers, Larry and Iris, love shallow water catfishing on Grand lake, so that’s what we did today.
A few quick throws of the cast net and we had plenty of fresh gizzard shad in the bait well for the morning catfishing.
Today, we wanted to try a new area we haven’t fished and see if we could get on a solid shallow water bite. The fish have been scattered with our mild winter and weird weather spring. We used our Lowrance side image to find bait and it continued to from deep water up to a good looking shallow area. The sun was up and bright, which warms the dark mud in some shallow areas. We found the fish we wanted to see in a small ditch in 1-3.5ft of water and got anchored up.
Our bite started out with channel catfish and then the blue catfish found our baits also. It wasn’t fast and furious, but it was a good consistent bite all morning allowing just enough time for good conversation with friends. Always a blessing to have these two on the boat.
