My SIL was here at the house and discussing fresh water tournaments where he used to live, and that was in West Tawakoni. He mention an event using "Trot Lines"!! I have never heard of this. What species of fish would be involved with such an event and is this True?

I know what they are. I have worked many many Saltwater tournament weigh stations in 20 years but I have never heard of a tourney where anglers do not use rod and reels.......only trot lines.

Fish with whiskers. Tournaments where you catch them by any legal means, most weight wins.

OK I assume this a "Freshwater" thing. The only thing I know about Freshwater is that I drink it and take a bath in it. Just sayin'

I guess it’s a freshwater thing, not sure the catfish in the ocean are worth eating.

Actually many years ago - I have caught saltwater catfish when I lived in Ecuador. It was extremely good eating. I have no clue to the actual species - caught on shrimp in the surf. Had one of local cooks at our hotel prepare it - he took one fillet as payment for the work. No clue about the saltwater varieties of catfish here in texas

Son-in-law I'd imagine.


New to angling. Catch and release. The dream - to catch at least one of every species in our great state (if I can manage to resist carp)!

For a simple answer: its a catfish tournament & yes its true.,. Tawokoni is a superb catfish lake. My BIL( thats Brother In Law) fishes there regularly. He & his BIL(Brother In Law married to his SIS[Sister] like to rig up heavy rod & reels for catfish 30#'s & up. They've caught many over 50#'s.
