Because Life is Better at the Lake

Dock Talk - Big Catfish on Palestine and Cedar Creek

by




Rigging for Big Catfish …
Three-way crane swivel, a short leader, 8-10 inches which reduces time hung up. Use a clip so you can change sinkers easily. Leaders, 8-10 inches, 85 lb test braid line, 8/0 to 10/0 "J' hooks depending on the size of the bait being used.

Night fishing ... sinker slide .... requires no retying to put on a different sinker.

Fishing bottom of a river or lake ...
8/0 hook, three or four beads, then a sliding 8 oz. egg sinker ... really good when you want bait to drop straight down.

This 51 lb. Blue Catfish was caught this past week from Cedar Creek Lake. Bait was live Gizzard Shad...GREAT CATCH!

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 29)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 85 degrees; 0.57 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs very early on lake points, grass lines, brushy cover, shaky heads, drop shots, and diving cranks later in the day along deeper creek banks, drop-offs, and timber in 14-28’. Hybrids and sand bass are off main lake points and humps with slabs, swimbaits, and rooster tails. Crappie are good with jigs and minnows in brush piles, deep water boat docks and near submerged timber in 12-25’. Catfish are good in 12-25’. Live bait and cut bait are working well.
