    Are there flatheads there too? I've only caught them at Conowingo but maybe that's because they prefer faster moving water than other cats? I got more to learn about catfishing

    I've never seen any flat heads caught there but the way they're spreading it wouldn't surprise me.

    The way they are spreading should be any day now.

    DNR Fisheries erected these last year; this is on the Chester River. On the Choptank, Tuckahoe (down there this AM...can't wait to hit the water), Corsica. Looks like a coming-out party...coming to a tidal river near you.

    DC, but I fish from SC to MD. Primarily saltwater, but I'm originally a freshwater fisherman from PA (Erie, Pymatuming, Raystown and all the rivers).

    I'm definitely not one of the guys that can quote the reg book, but I believe the Choptank River is one of those offlimits breeding grounds for stripers in the spring. It might have one of those crazy regs like if you lift a striper's tail out of the water your SOL (___ out of luck - fined).. Basically, someone better look into the date first. Stripers and cats will be feeding on any worms or bait fish tossed in the water :-)

    That's exactly why I chose the date so we wouldn't be bothered with crowds of rock fishermen. This is a catfish tournament and any rock caught will be very carefully released using a pier net. Can you join us?

    I have no pier net ... would coming to this event without one be a violation?

    I have one that anyone can use. I suspect that a few others will bring one as well.

    I probably should get one some time ... though I have no idea what to look for! Going to Cabelas tomorrow, so I'll see if they have any ...

    This is what you want. I think Cabelas carries the folding one. This one has a 36" dia.

    So....what species of cats can we expect to see at "the Tank"? Is it mostly 2-4# Channels?
    Are there any "monster" Blue cats to be had?

    During the summer months I've actually caught spotted sea trout in the 12-14" class on the south side fishing "gulp" swimming mullets.

    From a previous post, dude says that new tackle store on eastbound 50 on Kent Is., exit 39B is blowing them out for $22. That's where I'm getting mine.

    Kind of a pain draggin a 3' circle net around though.

    Yes it is mostly 2-4# Channels and that's the size I love to catch and eat. When I put 12 - 18 of those in my cooler I'm a very happy angler. I do however usually end up with 2 or 3 in the 5#-10# class and that's why I bring my drop/pier net. This year we also have a very good possibility of catching some tackle buster blue & flathead cats. Ain't that going to be a hoot. Anyway this season cats are going to be my primary target from my boat, piers, bridges and shore. That's why they call me CATMAN

    With the surgery scheduled for May 5th I'm sorry to say with a great deal of disappointment "no". When I'm into rehab therapy I'll have a better feel as to when we can reschedule it. Again I'm sorry about the disappointment.

    Hey, no problem ... get well again and we'll look forward to getting some catfishing schooling at a later date
