Default ????wheres the catfish?????

* i have always wanted to catfish..... no one in my familys ever has...... so we decided to try it, we went to barr lake and fished off the shore by the dam....i sat for five hours twittling my thumbs, we were using shad sides and stink bait, not one single bite, i was using a cirle hook with a slip sinker and about 12" of leader....... then a couple of my friends offered to take me to the windsor ponds and do some cattin' well i could only stay a couple of hours but we still had no luck..... i caught a couple of nice bass there today and bumped into a guy who said he usually catches lots of cats and none have been smaller than 5lbs, im definately not doing something right.... any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Barr Lake is a bit high at the moment and the water is probably a bit chilly for cats still. Once things warm up a bit go back and give it another shot.

Also, if you do a search on the forum and check Rottal's posts, he's done a lot of catfishing at Barr and his posts have a lot of good information.

Good luck!

Caught a little 7 LBER at chatfield in thew spillway tonite.* First cat of the year!* Didnt like my other baits but he decided he wanted to eat a piece of cheese!* Also sterns lake is a good for cats.* Good population of channel cats from 5-15 lbs. Lots of fun. It also has big bull heads in it.* My best is 4.8lbs, State record is 5.1 lbs.* My money is on sterns to break that state record. By the way you better be sure you want to be a catfisherman cuz once you go cat, you never go back lol.

I caught my first cat when i was 6 and have never turned back. As for Barr, Give it another two weeks and the cats will be going good. Unless, of course, we have some really windy days, then it will go sooner.

I have caught massive amount of cats weighing 5 to 10 ;bs out of Barr. My biggest was 23 lbs last year in July on sucker meat soaked in beef blood. Barr has potential. You just have to know what you are doing.

The ranger will let you fish it if you stay fishing actively. No sleeping, dozing, or the likes. You must stay active.
