What do you think this Urban Fishing for Big Blue Catfish – Washington DC, February 2017 video?
Fished with Catterman (his channel-bit.ly/2kEYD8G) for Blue Cats for the 2nd time in my life, we used fresh cut gizzard shad for bait and caught a number of Blues, with only the 4 decent ones included in this video, we didn’t have a scale for the first few fish, that first one that catterman caught was definitely closer to 30lbs. In the grand scheme of Blue cats, 20-30lb fish are not that big, although as far as winter fishing opportunites go as a Philly person, I was very happy to hook into a few fish that size.
We used 8/0 circle hooks
Fresh shad for bait
My rod in this video is a 9’6 shimano tiralejo 1-3oz
Reel is a Penn Clash 5k
Line is 30lb Sufix 832
Not sure what catterman’s rods/rigs were but regardless, everything worked.
