  • Blue Catfish caught at High Rock

    This is a picture of my side kick holding a blue catfish we caught this morning on a jug line. It weighed 5 lbs.

    We caught one other blue that was about 8 inches long and a ton more channels with the smallest being 3 pounds.

    I never knew high rock had any blues in it, out of all the times fishing for catfish here this was our very first blue. Does anyone know where or how to target these blues on High Rock?

    That is a nice one man. Never fished High Rock but I know there are a couple guys up here that are pretty familiar with it so they may be able to help. Anyway, thanks for sharing!!

    Thanks
    Thanks. I live in High Rock so its pretty much the only body of water I ever fish and I grew up here so I've been fishing it for about 18 years now and this was the first Blue I've ever caught. Back in the spring we caught some nice flatheads all around 20 or so pounds but I was just curious if anyone has caught any giant blues out of high rock. I know the Blues get a lot bigger than flatheads and that's something I'm interested in targeting. I appreciate the comments!

    Blues
    Hey Brad..YES high Rock has Blues but your catch is rare because I have Fished here since 1988 and I have only caught 3 myself and all about the size you have here...The Best method as far as targeting Blues is Slow Drifting Tight lines with Cut bait like they do at Badin...Speaking of Badin...Even though High Rock lacks Monster Blues...Badin is Full of them!! I have seen several between 50 and 60 lbs come from Badin and it's only a few more miles down the Road as you know...I was Striper Fishing on Badin a few years ago with 17lb line and Hooked a Monster Blue cat...It's was the Biggest Cat, I've ever had on Rod and reel and I finally seen him after 45 minutes of Fight but got impatient and tried to horse him up again and lost Him....I was Sick!!! It had to be well over 70lbs!!!!
