Lately I've been feeding a few catfish off the pier. Tossing bread crumbs brings them in. A couple of them have learned how to skim the surface and suck in bread with their mouths. There may be one mud cat swimming around among them. I just saw a blur of brown go by. Most of them are channel cats. There are bluegill swimming under the pier taking their turn eating the bread crumbs as well. We had catfish like this last year and I never tried to catch them. The pier was surrounded by hydrilla. That isn't the case this year. I may have to put the Pflueger Summit to the test and land a catfish with it. Hey. The bass aren't biting for me. Might as well fish for something I know is out there. I just hope I don't accidentally get any turtles. Those long nosed soft shell turtles seem to show up whenever I fish tight line out here.
