Re: flatheads & blue catfish stocked in colorado

Awesome! I haven't caught either of those species! But why stock only 148 flatheads in Cherry Creek? In a lake that size that will be a novelty catch.

Live bait.......that'll catch flatheads and blues......no stinky stuff either. They like to "hunt and kill" their prey. With that report I'd say that the state record for flats and blues is in jeopardy....... especially if people actually target them instead of channel cats.

Did you see the thread on chubs in the big thompson?.....there's the magic bait......8 to 10 inches is perfect.

Re: flatheads & blue catfish stocked in colorado

Older blues, alot like older flatheads, tend more towards large live fish, usually bigger than anyone fishes with. Also, the blues are more active in the late winter/early spring, usually before anyone is fishing for them. Flatheads like deeps holes in the river or lake with some current.

fishingkats has posted some pics of the blues from nee gronde pretty regularly. I'd be more interested in getting into some flatties.

Re: flatheads & blue catfish stocked in colorado

Makes me wonder if some of those big cats I have caught at Lonetree in the past aren't big blues. *Damn hard to tell the difference except for that anal fin.

I've caught alot of Blue cats below John Martin in the Arkansas River.... they just arent the monsters that people catch in the big rivers in the south.
