Awesome. I love Mississippi River catfishing. We catch more Spotted cats than blues, but we fish live bait exclusively.

Maaaaan. What is your PB? I'm a spinning reel guy. But I wouldn't trust it on the river. I seen 80 lb blues caught on king Kat combos from cabelas. Caught the fish (Destroyed the reel). I want to get them out as quick as possible (if they are not really deep) and back into the water as quickly as possible.

When a guy constantly tells himself he’s in a good mood, he’s really saying he’s typically an asshole! Not my kind of low energy to be friends with.

Most of us are just sport fisherman. If we eat everything we catch, next time or even next generation would only have small fish to catch or nothing. Best ones to eat or only 2 to 4 lbs.

I looked up how long a catfish can live out of water. It said some can live up to 15 to 18 hours. But I would not try it. If you release them within a few minutes they should be fine. Catfish is my favorite freshwater fish to eat though.

Awesome video.... just maybe not throw the fish down on the ground like that or keep them out so long if you plan on letting them go. That's why they took sp long to swim off. You had them out of the water to long. They will live, but gotta respect the fish we love to catch

Does anyone eat fish out of the Mississippi river? I live near St Louis, Mo and folks say not to eat the fish from the Mississippi river.

If you check the Missouri or Illinois fishing regulation booklets you can find out whether you should or not. The river is a lot cleaner than it used to be, but I think larger fish are not what I would choose to eat.

@ M. Hood. Always good to good things happening back home. Great video. Can you or anyone on the channel tell me if this place is open to public fishing or do you have to have special permission and/or access to fish it. I'd make that drive down from my original home in Mississippi to get there. Never really fished the river.
Timothy Spaghetti

I am not from there but in my state with a valid license rivers are open to public. If you must walk through private property is another thing but if you can access river on open land you can walk the shore line anywhere.

@Tyler Ruble My local river "The Susquehanna" ,highwaymen toss Roadkill deer carcass off bridges,etc and they bottom feed.(Much like shark in ocean they keep waterways clean) We cut the belly meat out (like you) but we have Amazing other fish that live off the offspring those breeders make.(Musky-Northern Pike (boney but grind up and mix with potato for fish patty)Walleye,Small mouth etc... In our river the breeders make so many babies each season.. When they get over five pounds,they bottom feed and so many 10-15 inch fish live off off Helgrammite and Darter,worm and are fresh because not feeding bottom yet.. The Baby cats set in shallow rapids ,everything small stays in shallow rapids with small mouth in my River so they do not get ate. Sure as you said,they can be done up proper but oh!!!! give me a nice fresh blue about 12",eat them all day skinned and baked.,lol... I like pond bullheads that wash into the crick that are tributary. Many people in my area sure do eat the Breeders though because when water gets high it is tough to get anything else. We slap on a cut crick chub (scaled with head and tail removed).. But late summer so nice to stand in shallows around boulders and drift fish the 12 inchers with ultra lite.. I guess if having a huge fish fry the breeders sure are great..Darn,I am hungry for fish now.lol.. You have Mercury warning in your region now?

@Timothy Spaghetti many people believe that because the bigger they are, the more red meat they have. All you have to do is fillet like normal and cut off the red meat that spreads out from the lateral line and soak in salt water like any other fish. That red meat is what tastes awful. Super clean white meat when you do it that way. I still see people using skinning pliers. You can’t see the red meat that way because it leaves that silver skin
