More WV Catfish
« on: October 04, 2016, 09:54:49 PM »
   My mom is up for a visit from NW Fla and we went yesterday and caught bait and put out about 50-55 bushhooks (Limb lines). We checked this morning and had 15 catfish (9 Channel cats and 6 flatheads) that weighed 60 lbs total. Biggest fish we got in with was 8 lbs. I had another flathead that likely weighed 10 lbs or so that escaped from my landing net. Sampson had a great time barking at each of them. He only barks at catfish not other types.

    We caught more bait this afternoon with help from Molly, my 4 y/o granddaughter. Mom is having a great time spending such quality time with her great granddaughter. They both did a pretty good job keeping me run ragged baiting hooks, taking fish off the hooks and getting lines out of the trees. We will see how we fare in the morning when Molly is along to help us run the lines and take the fish off then go catch more bait for a couple of hours then come home and I'll clean the fish.

    Took Molly (4 y/o granddaughter) along yesterday to help catch bait and check the lines. Went back this morning and had 7 fish with biggest a 23-1/2 lb flathead. Molly had a blast and my mom was in heaven get ting to spend time with her great granddaughter and fishing. Had one 2-3 lb channel cat on when we baited up tonight. Will take up the lines in the morning as looks to have plenty for a couple of Mom's churches back home to have fish fries.

 

 
Focus is not great. Photographer wife was off at a sewing meeting and I lack her skill. This is entire string.

   Mom and I went back and took up the lines today. Had 9 catfish weighed 54 lbs and the biggest was 22-1/2lbs. Wife has pictures but not sent them to me yet. Maybe tomorrow or next day I can add them.

   Our 3 day total on the lines was 166 lbs with a 23-1/2 and a 22-1/2 lb fish. Of course the most fun was when Molly was along with her great grandma. Every one of the fish was properly and thoroughly barked at by Sampson.

Pretty much finding fish everywhere I put out my lines. Likely done for the year. Took Mom back Friday to Atlanta for a family reunion yesterday. My brother picked her up there and took her home last night to NW Fla. She took 18 gallons of frozen catfish fillets/nuggets with her. Will donate them to 2 different churches there for a few fish fries. My SIL offered to put them in the freezer at their church but Mom would not go along with that. I guess she was afraid those Baptists would eat her fish and her Methodist friends would go without.

A gallon of cut up fish weighs about 7 lbs and should feed about 21 or so people at a typical fish fry so that should feed close to 400 people.
