Took the family out to the miss. river to do some cat fishing with rod and reels.My wife caught the biggest of the day that weighed in at 61 lbs. My caught one at 28 lbs. We ended up with 11 fish on rod and reels this morning.Fall is in the air. What a great way to spend a day with the family.

That is some big catfish. we use to go down near Gramercy where the grain barges are. The Miss. River holds some monster fish. Glad everyone had a good trip. When you come down to Leeville bring some of that fall weather with you.

We sometimes run trot lines and noodles.Then pole fish during the day time. I have a 22ft center console that we use in the river so it is very safe and a lot of run. Jls it was 57 sat morn up here.

We fish out of tallulah la. Across from Vicksburg ms. Come up one weekend and we can try. Caught one early this year weighed in at 115 but on trot lines. Deep holes are the ticket right now

Where?
Those are some nice fish! I live near Baton Rouge, and have fished the Mississippi once, but only managed to catch a huge bull shark and a 15 pound yellow cat. We were fishing down near the sunshine bridge, close to pierre part. What kind of setup/bait were you using? the fast current was messing up my rig that night.

Are they still good to eat that big?

fish that size are ok to eat but the 10lb to 20lb seems to b the best eating size for me. If you clean all the red meat of and just have good clean white meat its good. My set up is a 3 to 4 oz weight and two 5/0 hooks. I use 200lb mono to make my leaders with. Like you do for offshore fishing. Find where it goes from 20 ft to about 60 or 70 feet and fish the area around 30 to 45 feet deep. With the river low as it is now.You have to look for some deep holes.They have not been in the deepest parts but on drop off about 40ft deep.
