Raincatcher said:Those are some impressive looking cats! My neighbors go over to the coast to Tahkenich (sp) by Florence so the wife can catch catfish. She says their nice and fat, but I don't know if they are as big as these. How do you cook them? I once heard that they carry a tinge of a mud taste. Is that true?

I've never tried going after catfish. I'm not familiar with any part of the technique or anything else. Is there a limit on them? You guys all look like you were pretty busy. What do you use for bait? Best time of day to go after them? Thanks for the pictures, I bet you stir up some interest in catfish. There are supposedly catfish just about everywhere there's water. Feel like sharing the name of your favorite place to find them? No problem if you don't. Do you fish trout or koke? Keep the posts coming. Be safe.
I forgot about the warmouth you caught. They are pretty rare anywhere in Oregon. I haven't caught any of the ones you mentioned, but then I have never fished for them. I don't normally even fish for cats but they sure are a kick when you get a big one on a crappie rod. My personal best is 7 lb 4 oz. That poor little Fire-Fly jig never knew what hit it.Crappie Chaser said:Let's see, blue cat,flathead, a couple different bullheads, sturgeon, suckers, even caught a warmouth once. I'm probably missing a few also

Oh well... there's always Bond Butte Pond... they aren't QUITE that big, but you can catch 5-pounders there... last year some woman caught an 8-pounder... can't wait 'till we see some warmer weather here to get 'em movin'!!!
