Today, I had first time guests, Larry and Iris Beckett, for a blue catfish trip on Grand Lake in Oklahoma. We started out fishing for blue catfish on the edge of a drop off into the main river channel. We caught a good amount of nice eating sized blue catfish up to 10 pounds here. After a couple of hours on anchor the bite slowed way down. We pulled anchor and graphed around. The blue catfish had left the area. We went to several other locations trying to nail down a new pattern as the sun broke through the clouds and the wind picked up. Time to head shallow!!!! After sneaking our way onto a shallow flat close to the river channel we eased the anchors in the water, got baited up, and FISH ON!!! We completed the limits and got into some nice picture fish as well. What a great day at the office with wonderful new customers! We even got a bonus Paddlefish Spoonbill.
