Okay, the link to the site is coloradocatfishconnection.com

We are a local group very small in size with 5 members but its more for helping new fishermen find the big ones and different set ups and such. I figured the forums would be a good place to start getting the word out about the site to see if we could get a few more fishing buddies. I dont know how well our idea will work yet, but if nothing else its a good spot for us to brag and share some knowledge at the very least.

If the picture shows up, this is a 20+ pound cat caught last summer

Hey that's a nice cat. What kind of cat is that one? We just have channels in Utah that get any size to them. I'll check out your website it sounds like fun. Don't know if Colorado is like Utah, but we have seen a big interest in catfishing lately. Not equal to trout, but growing. Wish you well in your efforts. Later J

Thats a channel cat. Colorado doesnt have many other species. We do have some blues, but my dad has only caught one of those about 18 pounds many years ago. we have bullheads, but I dont classify those as cats... We have a lot of big channel cats in colorado but the thing is a lot of people just dont know how to fish for them.

We have noticed some upward trend in cat fishing, but trout and bass seem to be most popular. I get so tired of trout though we catch them all year long even with out catfish baits and such. Colorado over stocks small fish and its just horrible to go to a lake and catch 60 70 8-10 inch fish. Once you get up into the high country those numbers go down, but you still deal with a lot of stockers out there.

What we have learned is theres a local set of lakes that closes down in the winter, that the fishing is pretty good at when the lakes open in the spring. I mean at least you can catch some nice holdovers then. Those same 10 inch fish will be 16 18 inches by spring so theres a solid supply of scud in the lakes.

These were both caught ten minutes from our house. and both are 15 pounds one is just an inch longer than the other.

TubeDude has taught us how to smoke the catfish and they are top shelf good stuff. But you're right smaller are better eating. Later J

Hey Richard you just helped us tie last years contest entries... Now I hope you pull in some of those monster cats... PS... You can count one fish from the other side of the line, so if you fish south you can count it... Good luck... J
