The weather has been great the past week but it has scattered the catfish on Eagle Mountain Lake. We are still catching catfish but having to work a little harder at it the last few days.
We filmed a short segment about catfishing on Eagle Mountain with Channel 8 yesterday morning, I am still trying to see if I can get a copy of the video. After that Gordon and I went out and did some “fun” fishing, first time I have fished without clients in months. We caught some nice channel catfish and blue catfish but no big fish. We did catch fish at every location we tried.
I broke my elbow and my wrist this weekend so I am going to be handicapped for a few weeks. I am looking for a deckhand for a couple of trips that i don’t have covered if anyone is interested.
I expect fishing to continue to be good for another few weeks until the lake begins turning over. Water temp was 80 degrees when I launched today so it will not be long. I am starting to get a lot of calls for trophy blue catfish trips so make sure you get on the books early to get your choice of dates for winter fishing.
