Headed out to Kerr Lake in Virginia for some cat fishing. I boated 5 and had 2 others on but lost them and I also had about 4 hits on my bait but for whatever reason the fish dropped the bait before I could get the rod out of the holder.
It was actually cold down here this morning. Launch time temps were right around 28 degrees but it warmed up into the 50s. Water temps were hovering around 50 degrees. I found that if I choose my days with little to no wind the bite is better. Probably because my drift is slowed way down.
The really big cats have eluded me so far but I know they are there. Talking to other anglers they talk of blue cats in the 40lb range and flatheads 60+.
The ones I caught today were from 6-10 lbs. Still a good tug.
I finally was able to get back on the water today after a 2 week lay off. I was busy doing a side job earning some spending cash.
