Learning how to target blue catfish on Grand Lake in Oklahoma. Today, I took two new customers, Brandon and Donnie, on a teaching trip at Grand Lake for blue catfish. We started out learning the patterns of gizzard shad and how to throw a cast net. After they got rid of the taco’s and found the pancakes, we ran to a shallow water flat where the wind was blowing in. It was fish on and rods slamming for about an hour. It slowed a little and we came back to the realization this was a trip to learn not catch so we pulled anchor and set off to learn drifting. We marked some fish in 12-18ft of water and set up a drift. Lots of taste testers, but only hooked up with a couple drifting.
Sonar time! We spent a good portion of the trip going over tips and techniques with the HDS 12 and seasonal patterns of blue cat. To end the trip we went to a deep water flat 25-40ft and completed the day with a couple of doubles dragging baits and learning how to control the boat with the MinnKota.
These guys were great and were like sponges soaking up the information. Good times!!!
