Been using abu 7000 series and I freaking love them. Never had a problem with big trophy cats. 52 lb flatty and a 43 lb flatty earlier this year and a a couple dozen blue between 35-60lbs. That was just this year and I have been using abu 7000 series for 3 years or so now. Not a single issue. Buddy of mine caught a 67 lb blue and a 43 lb flatty on an abu 6500 reel this year. But its whatever your price comfort level is and your personal preference.

Instead of the little zebco dock demon,, I found the Zebco micro 33 to actually be one of the best bluegill rods I've ever used. They have a combo with an ultralight 5' rod, with the micro 33 reel with a button, cast like a normal spincast, and if you buy seperately, they have one with a trigger where the reel sits underneath the rod. I like the 33 specifically because it's has the very quick locking anti-reverse, unlike most spincasts, and the closed reel makes it so my son can use it too. There's also less on it to get caught it's like you said yours goes behind the seat of your truck, mine goes behind the seat of my car or in my trunk. Less parts toget snagged on a spincast. It's the only thing I like a spincast for, and as far as spincasts, the 33 is the only one I'll buy. I've also made two other bluegill rods, one is more of a vertical jigging rod with an ice reel and a light 7' rod, and the other is on a Shakespeare micro 4'6" ultralight with a little 500 series spinning reel. Which is actually another thing I would highly recommend, they are about $17 at Walmart and they called the Shakespeare micro series. They have a combo, one with a spincast and one with a spinning reel that you can buy but I don't think they're quite as high of quality. I got one for dog fishing once in the tip broke off. That's actually what I exchanged to get the first Zebco micro combo. The micro series rods are very light, excellent for panfish. They have a 4 ft 6-in ultralight and then a 5-ft light, I believe they also have a 5-ft 6-in light, then they have a 7-ft light. On the 7-foot I can catch any size crappie or shad or anything like that. So for a bait rod like your skipjack rod, a nice budget rod with good performance would be the 7 ft micro series by Shakespeare, paired with a 1000 size reel with 4 lb test in my opinion. Smaller fish I'll throw some tippet or 2lb on.

Catfish are good eating and fun to catch don’t get me wrong, but I’d take them hard fighting Stripers anyday of the week! And they’re better eating to me. Especially fresh caught! Oh and I really enjoy your channel! You are without a doubt one of the most entertaining people doing this!

Why is it that people near the bank cast out into the middle but those in the boat cast close to the bank..... And do you tend to find bigger cats closer to the bank or in the middle of the big ponds..

Thank you catfish Dave. I live in Minnesota, and have enjoyed fishing for catfish since I started fishing. I'm 62 years old now, and still get "grief" from others that only fish for walleye. While I do fish for everything in the water, catching catfish has been so much fun.

We don't have white perch here. If you have them were you are I would go with perch if it is cut bait. Live one is probably good as the other

Well I am loyal I have learned quite a bit from just you talk to your own TRvid and explaining about the bait the hooks the line everything everything like that I have learned some things that I did not know and it's not to say that I never knew it but I didn't know about you know you use behavior lines and you smell the hook usually a Palomar knot or there's there's another name for another not I have forgotten it it's it's pretty good night. It will sometimes it will straighten the hook out if it's hung before it will break the line but you covered some information that I myself I didn't know and I'm 56 years old hi like the old saying says you can teach an old dog new tricks well I learned some new things by listening to your video thank you very much have a great and blessed day

Will catfish Dave you know watching this video on the gear God I did not know about the level wines that you were using I thought they had what you called the worm guide in there but I didn't know that you did not have one on there it was the open so that's self-explanatory on that there so that's I didn't know thank you for telling me that I've always had the ones with the level wind guide and that's understandable thank you for that information

This helped me a lot. I've been a fisherman my whole life and always loved catching catfish. I've never started actually targeting them until recently though. This video has all the info I've been looking for all over the place. Thanks man 👍
Chris Bergeron
Chris Bergeron Yıl önce
On a river, which area do you target. Do you fish inside or outside of a bend, a flat or the deepest part of the river?
Catfish Dave
Catfish Dave Yıl önce
That is a loaded question . All are good at certain times. Inside bends are usually best in very high current. Outside Bends would be better in normal to slow current. Big fish like to hide deep unless there is oxygen problems during summer heat. Flats can be great places when they are feeding or can be fishless depending on the day.
