Tommy caught his limit this morning…

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

The fish are biting…  and biting ZombieCat.  Tommy put out 4 poles this morning - two baited with ZombieCat and two baited with minnows.  The first 5 were caught on ZC.  To be fair (and to catch the most fish as possible) worms and live shad were also used.  We like the results…

ZombieCat – 18
Minnows – 4
Lake shad – 3
Worms – 0

Last weekend a small group of us stayed the night at our family lake house along the shores of Lake Tawakoni (state park info) in East Texas.  Tommy (of Tommy’s ZombieCat) was up before sunlight getting rounded up for an early departure when he heard substantial splashing out in the water.  It was assumed some carp were responsible for the commotion, but our spotlight quickly revealed that hundreds if not thousands of one to two pound channel cat had moved into the very shallow water to spawn in and along the riprap surrounding our point.

Unfortunate for us, we had prior obligations and had to head out early without even getting a hook wet.  We’re hoping to have some time this weekend to get some ZombieCat Catfish Bait in the water and hopefully catch our limit of catfish!  We’re also hoping that the lake levels have risen noticeably from the heavy rains received earlier in the week.

Channel Cat (as well as Blue Catfish) spawn when lake temps range from 70 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit.  (Which usually occurs in late spring / early summer in our part of the world).  They tend to migrate to the warmer shallower waters to find protection in the voids between rocks and manmade structures, under logs and in burrows and cavities in the banks.

(I think the SRA’s gauges, at least on Lake Tawakoni, are acting fluky – but you can check reservoir and stream flow levels managed by the Sabine River Authority HERE).

Cheers!
