Conowingo Cats!

Type: Tidal
Region: North Eastern
Location: Conowingo Dam

Headed out on my boat around 6:15 am and watched the sun come up and the fish jump. Caught several channel cats using chicken livers and a flathead using a white perch we caught and used for cut bait. Several big ones managed to get away. The water temp feels pretty warm compared to the air temps. It was a great day of fishing.

Catfish Action

Type: Tidal
Region: North Eastern
Location: Conowingo Dam

The catfish are still hitting hard in the early mornings. We used chicken livers and pulled in some nice ones and the rockfish were hitting all day but were all under 18". I had what I thought was a snag but must have been a huge flathead. I was pulling and pulling trying to break free and then my line took off and within seconds I felt a head shake and the line broke. I was using 30lb test but I'll get him another day!

Catfish Hitting at Conowingo

Type: Tidal
Region: North Eastern
Location: Conowingo Dam

I caught this big flathead along with many, many, many channel cats in one spot where they seem to hold at using white perch soaked in chicken liver blood as well as chicken livers. After they open the gates and started releasing water we called it a day. A great day out on the water and making new friends!

Choptank Catfish

Type: Freshwater
Region: Eastern
Location: Denton, Md, Choptank River

Well, me and my friend George (the guy on the right in the photo) were itching to catch a catfish this year but we haven’t been having much luck, til now. We tried catfish fishing at Red Bridges and Martinak several times but we didn’t catch anything so George suggested going under the business 404 bridge in Denton on the other side of the river across from the park. He said he went there once with his dad and he caught a lot of catfish but he also said there was a lot of snags there. I said we’ll go there but we’re going to go fishing on the park side because it was nicer and didn’t have too many snags but when we got to the park it was crowded so we decided to go to the other side of the river like George suggested. We got all set up and in about 10 minutes on my second cast, I caught a 22 inch, 5 lb Channel cat. It fought pretty hard and I thought my line was going to snap but I was able to reel him in. I don’t go catfishing a lot but that was the biggest catfish I’ve caught. That was the only fish we caught that day and we probably got snagged 6 times between the two of us but hey, it was worth it.

Winter Fishing the Susquehanna

Type: Freshwater
Region: Northern
Location: Susquehanna River

This past Saturday I was out fishing with Captain Henry Scott on one of the coldest days of the year. It was 11 degrees without the wind-chill and the wind was blowing north east at about 15 mph. How’s that for a great day of fishing? We were fishing the Susquehanna River under the bridge near Port Deposit/ Perryville. We caught fish all morning (80% were keepers of 10” or more). One fish was 14” and a number of fish had roe in them. We fished in about 55-75 ft of water using live minnows and 3 or 4 oz sinkers to help us stay on bottom due to the current because of the wind. A few boaters braved the weather for fishing although the majority of boats we saw were out duck hunting instead. Had a great time catching Yellow Perch. Fried up a few immediately upon return. Great tasting yield.
