Winter time river fishing
Another day another adventure. Started out the morning looking for trout. Only found a dozen or so with 3 being 17” keepers. Then decided to go see if the reds had shown up in one of my winter time sight fishing spots. Easily saw 30+ reds. But they were real skittish. Ended up catching 5 shorts and one 20”er. The big surprise of the day was spotting and catching a 15-20 lb blue cat in less than 2 feet of water on a matrix shad. Had to follow him around for a few minutes. And bounce it off his head a few times, but finally got it to eat it.
