Because Life is Better at the Lake

Dock Talk - Big Catfish on Palestine and Cedar Creek




Rigging for Big Catfish …
Three-way crane swivel, a short leader, 8-10 inches which reduces time hung up. Use a clip so you can change sinkers easily. Leaders, 8-10 inches, 85 lb test braid onecatfish, 8/0 to 10/0 "J' hooks depending on the size of the bait being used

Night fishing ... sinker slide .... requires no retying to put on a different sinker.

Bottom fishing a river or lake ...
8/0 hook, bead, then a sliding 8 oz. egg sinker ... really good when you want want the bait to drop straight down from the boat into a brush pile. A bad thing about this rig is you can expect to hang up regularly.

Pictures is a 51 lb. Blue Catfish taken July 23 from Cedar Crakk Lake. Great Catch!
