Nuggets From A Cincinnati Catfish Guide

I attended a seminarrepparttar 138184 other week by a local professional catfish guide. This guide

worksrepparttar 138185 Ohio River about 15 miles above and below Cincinnati. His information relates to

catfishing on bigger rivers such asrepparttar 138186 Ohio.

The fishing spot he takes his clients fishing depends onrepparttar 138187 amount of current inrepparttar 138188

river. The pool stage forrepparttar 138189 Ohio at Cincinnati is 26.6 feet. According to him whenrepparttar 138190

river is in pool than catfishing is very poor. He prefersrepparttar 138191 river to be inrepparttar 138192 27 to 28

feet range with some current forrepparttar 138193 best fishing action. Oncerepparttar 138194 river gets above 30 feet

thenrepparttar 138195 current is too strong for good fishing.

When there is some current he prefers to bait with fresh cut bait. The current allowsrepparttar 138196

scent trail to spread all over torepparttar 138197 catfish. In low or no current conditions he uses live

bait. The vibrations ofrepparttar 138198 live bait will be pickup byrepparttar 138199 catfish in quite waters. Skipjacks arerepparttar 138200 bait fish he prefers for they have a very oily body that produces a

excellent scent trail. The big problem is locatingrepparttar 138201 skipjacks to use as bait. Normally

you just have to fish forrepparttar 138202 skipjacks and load up a small cooler. Then get home and bag

them for a freezer. Shad are much easier to locate and to catch for a fishing trip. Once a

school is spotted just throw out your casting net. He normally makes a couple casts and

has his large live well loaded for his clientís trip.

He uses a simple rig of, main line 30 pound mono, 2-4 ounces of sinker, tied to a mono

leader of 50 pound test. He prefers a 6/0 to 8/0 octopus circle style hooks. He has FLAT

sinker which are great, however they are hard to come by around here.

According to himrepparttar 138203 catfish will be found in 30 feet or deeper holes,repparttar 138204 Garr and other

fish usually do not stay in water that deep. Flatheads are home bodies; hang tight to

structure such as sunken barges, boulders, and sunken trees. Blue cats like cooler water,

stronger current and will suspend.

The action for cats picks up whenrepparttar 138205 water temperature is inrepparttar 138206 68-70 degree range. The

day time temperatures are much higher inrepparttar 138207 summer around here. Duringrepparttar 138208 summer months,

the local pleasure boats forces you to fish at night or early morning around downtown


He does watch his depth finder for any big changes onrepparttar 138209 river bottom. To him any sudden

change in depth is what he will check out. He really does not depend on marking fish. Since

he has spent so many hours on this section ofrepparttar 138210 Ohio River he already knows nearly allrepparttar 138211

honey holes. He does suggest only checking outrepparttar 138212 area ofrepparttar 138213 river between New Richmond

and North Bend Ohio. Along that stretch of river pay special attention to outside bends of

the river. If there is a local heavy rain, checkrepparttar 138214 storm sewers that flow intorepparttar 138215 river.

That stuff washing intorepparttar 138216 river sets off a dinner bell response to catfish, and they put

onrepparttar 138217 feed bag.

Hopefully, these nuggets of information from a professional catfish guide will put more and

bigger catfish atrepparttar 138218 other end of your line this season. Tight lines to all. webmaster for Cincinnati Catfishing AND SHOP WITHOUT DROPPING Over700Bargings4YOU XXXXXXXXX

Why Attend A Clinic

Why Attend a Clinic ?

Bill Dunigan

Many riders have asked this question overrepparttar years. Quite a number of them are self-taught. Likewise, many of them have also trained their own horses. This is a very common situation inrepparttar 138182 horse world. However,repparttar 138183 more involved we become in competing,repparttar 138184 more assistance we need. The chances are thatrepparttar 138185 riders who are placing ahead of you have a coach, trainer, or instructor to work with or seek input from.

Look for instance atrepparttar 138186 equestrian teams of any ofrepparttar 138187 countries competing in international competitions. All of these teams have coaches. The same thing is true of any ofrepparttar 138188 riding teams associated with schools everywhere. If you look atrepparttar 138189 top competitors in your field competing as individuals, you will find they have a few select, trusted, and knowledgeable friends or family members who constantly give them feedback. This is in itself, a form of coaching. Todayrepparttar 138190 caliber of horses is so high andrepparttar 138191 talent, knowledge and ability ofrepparttar 138192 riders is so superior, that if you are competing you need someone onrepparttar 138193 ground.

Most of our friends or family are accustomed to seeing us ride a particular way or our horse going a certain way, and as a result may miss something that really needs to change. When we bring in a new set of eyes itís interesting how these things suddenly get resolved. Also, most of us tend to hear only what we want to hear from people we already know. Donít underestimaterepparttar 138194 value of that outside opinion.

The clinician is there to help as much as possible in a short period of time. As a result ofrepparttar 138195 time constraints, they will tend to zero in on very specific areas. If you approachrepparttar 138196 opportunity as a real learning experience, itís amazing just how much you can come away with. I am not suggesting that a clinic will be a fix all event. Instead, it should give you a different perspective from which to view things. It should provide you with some additional ideas on how to resolve some ofrepparttar 138197 issues you may be encountering. Every clinician and clinic is both similar and different atrepparttar 138198 same time. Each will have their own individual way of expressing themselves.
