Fishing Oologah Lake in Oklahoma for Crappie and Blue Catfish with the Madison guys
Today, I had Larry Madison and his two boys for a trip on Oologah Lake. We started the day catching crappie on new brush in 12-16ft of water. The keeper crappie preferred minnows today. They fished minnows and I fished jigs…they caught the good fish and I had a dink fest, lol!!!
After we caught a decent mess of crappie, it was time to switch gears and catch some blue catfish. We turned the OU football game on, marked some fish in 20-35ft of water and started drifting baits at .5-.7mph. It didn’t take long for a rod to get slammed and Mr. Blue Catfish to enter the cooler. The wind never did blow enough for the blues to get stacked up together and the bite was fairly slow, but we did get plenty for them a nice family dinner. It did get a little quite as the Sooners failed to show up and were defeated by Texas.
All in all it was a great day on the water with good people and beautiful weather!!!
