My First Catfish
by Tyler Sedam
My first catfish was at Summit Lake, Indiana. I was using a lime green hook with half a night crawler while fishing to the left side of what used to be a bridge.
I casted out, sat down, and 5 minutes later I twitched my pole and a fish shot at it. I set the hook and thought he was a bass because of the way he ran for cover. About 10 minutes later I finally got him in the boat. I weighed him and turns out it was an 11 pound catfish.
Congratulations On Your First Catfish
Big congrats to you Tyler on catching your first catfish! Besides it being your first whiskerfish, an 11 pounder is really quite nice too. I have known some anglers who have fished throughout their life who have never caught catfish over 5 pounds.
Thanks for sharing your catfish fishing story. Some pictures would be cool too,... maybe next time, huh. ;-) Never the less, good job with pulling in that catfish.
Best of luck freshwater fishing and fishing for catfish
