8/1/22 I got something new to fish for. I caught a good amount of baby blue cats this morning. I really wanted to fish for catfish, so I put a 3" Gulp Minnow on a 1/16th jig hear and worked it slow across bottom. Some guy was fishing for catfish but didn't catch any yet, said that size are very good to eat. I said you want them. He said sure. I didn't get a chance to dump them out and take a picture of them.

They're very good marinated overnight in Old Bay hot sauce then fried.

After all these years still learning. I got a new fish to go after, and a new way to catch catfish.
All of the catfish that I've caught this year have been on a Beetle Spin.

Yea Rob, but were you fishing for blue cats? I have also caught by-catch cats while fishing for other fish. My post is about fishing for blue cats and catching quite a few. We know you can catch them now and then on lures but I think I'm on to something new. We shell see. Thanks for the reply.

Rob, The best part is I thought about this at home and tried it and it works. I thought I'm going to the marina and fish the 3" Gulp and see what I can come up with. Well I found out it is a good way to catch cat fish. I also caught some other kind of cats. I guess they call them mud cats. They are ugly brown cats. The blue cats are clean and pretty/ blue and white. I think I'm going to buy some 4" Gulp Minnows and try them. I'm thinking bigger blue cats, and bass.

I caught a big Channel cat on the 3in Gulp. It tapped it a few times, then it inhaled it. My fault for retrieving too slowly.

I used to have two albino catfish as a young adult in college. I know I make fun of them a lot on here, but watching them grow over the several years I had them. They are finely tuned killing machines, just like their furred counterparts. They’re not scavengers, if they don’t need to be
