7lb catfish, but never seen a black catfish before. Thought I had a nice bass there for a 2nd. He hit a square bill bouncing it off the rocks. [Linked Image]

It is spawning time for the catfish. They will hit a moving bait this time of year.

I’ve been catching some nice cats while bass fishing.
This is two different trips a week apart.

It is a flathead catfish (pylodictis olivaris). Flathead catfish are called by different common names all over the country. They like sunfish and sometimes crankbaits. roflmao

They also like white spinnerbaits! And the bigger ones will straighten out the wire.

Nice Greg!! Cats will def bite a crankbait! My tourney partner and I were fishing a tourney at Cedar Creek years ago throwing bandits around docks. He hooks what we think is a double digit bass that takes off (luckily) out from under the dock to deeper water. 10 minutes later we haul out a 40 lb + yellow cat. The people at the dock were hooting and hollering the whole time we were trying to get it into the net! LOL! What a rodeo!

In the summer if you are throwing a spinner or crankbait on Tawakoni all day you are going to catch a catfish.

Caught two on Falcon last week during a shad spawn on a squarebill. Slime all over my line.

I think just about every bass angler has lucked into catfish a time or two.

Last year during the Sam Rayburn fall shootout my dad and I were fishing brushpiles. I tossed out a 10" worm and felt a good thump, when I set the hook I started telling my dad big un get the net, ended up being 15 pound yellow cat.
