3.0 lb. Channel Catfish caught by Kevin Frank fishing in North Carolina on 08/06/11
18.0" / 3.0 lb. Channel Catfish caught by Kevin Frank fishing on Saturday August 06, 2011 at 17:16 1.86 km from Bynum in Chatham County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Wooly bugger pattern with rubber legs a Bass Fly

Its settled. August is catfish month around these parts. I've only fished three time in three different locations and caught a catfish. All of the fish were caught on a crayfish colored bugger pattern with rubber legs. All of the fish hit the fly with in seconds of it hitting the water. The key is do nothing. Letting the fly drop and sit was the only way I've found works. The amazing thing about catfish is their ability to dive. I caught one tonight on my 8wt rod and even when the fish was with in a few feet of me I could not pull it to the surface. It wasn't until the fish was exhausted that I could bring it up. There's something about catfish I find fascinating. Maybe it's the whiskers or the strange look of them. To see other reports please check out my blog, http://fishwithkev.blogspot.com/
