Made a last minute decision to get out there and chase some cats on the lower suskie and/or flats. Ramping at Port D.... see you guys out there. Will provide a report.
Steve, These blue cats are always abundant in the bay in the Spring. As the salinity rises in the Summer, they will retreat back into the rivers. I am the MD recreational representative on NOAA Baywide catfish action team and we are working hard on a solution to reduce their numbers. We will meet at VCU this Summer again. It ain't easy........ GaryI agree with Skip. The Bay is on its knees and the Blues are coming in for the kill shot. Damn! Each of them is like a little bottom net on a trawler. Anything and everything. You might guess I have zero interest in catching them and you would be correct.
Skip, I am the one working on marketing and increased interest in fishing for them. I have been giving people samples of blue catfish I smoke and taking many people fishing for them. I'm taking Erik Zlokovitz, from DNR and his Son fishing for them tomorrow. Any ideas would be appreciated.........GaryGary - N B S seafood on Dorsey Rd near BWI is selling whole Blue Cats for $2.00 a pound.
Any thought on a big push to market the Cats in Md ?
