Bluecats on the River

By Huck Finn - Posted on 30 August 2011

Since I forgot how to catch a nice mess of crappiei, here are a few pics from the past couple of weeks catfishing on the Ohio River. The bluecats were caught driftfishing with cut skipjack. My boys big fish weighed in at 18.5 lbs and my Dads' fish was about 16. All the fish were let go to fight again.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
