All of these blue cat fish were caught on same day

using flagging jugs.

They were caught in the daytime.

They weighed from twenty to thirty pounds

and were at least 36 inches in length.

I was fishing in about 20′ and

using mid size bream for bait.

something eating my fish

Several times this is all I get when I run my jugs.

I’m guessing a large logger head turtle is helping himself to my fish.

Jug Fishing

Without his good help,

he would not catch many fish.

circle hooks

I prefer circle hooks for catfish.

The Mustad 10/0 is a good heavy hook.

+++++++++

Well it was not strong enough

as a big fish straighten it

and kept going.

it happened again!

++++++++

In the same area as before,

one of my smaller jug channel cat has been mauled

by a larger catfish.

He better be careful

as I am looking for him to make one

small mistake.

pretty bird on Toledo Bend Lake

This Bald Eagle was preoccupied

and allowed me to get very close

before flying.

fishing can be dangerous

I hooked a large blue cat fish on my flagging jug

and brought him into the boat.

+++++

He flopped a couple of times

hitting my leg with one of his fins.

It went to the bone.

I cleaned the wound,

added large band-aid

and back to jug fishing.
