Image


first one of the day.
Image

then we had a couple of these guys swim threw and I was only able to get one to bite. it was cool watchin them see wat they liked and they did not like jigging when they were next to it. a jig to get there attention and then sit still. same with the 2 northerns that we caught on the rod instead of stickin.
Image

couple still shots I took out of a video

Image

Image

and that's a 1 litter bottle
Image

Image

they didn't seem to be hungry today seemd more to me just aggressive and nailin the decoy. but not each other at one time we had 3 in the hole at one time? and they didn't want nothing to do with the jig and minnow head?

I've never even heard of catfish through the ice, let alone seen one until this thread. What's next bullhead? I thought ice was for pike and delicious succulent crappie.

Catfish and bullheads are not in the same league.

Catfish are great fried and a blast to catch.

Clearly you have never had bullhead rolled in flower and fried! Or smoked.

I used to fish cats in the summer with some of my older buddies out in lqp. The cats were ok to eat, the prized fish in the summer were yellow bullheads or "fantails" as my buddies called them. Not as good as a walleye or sunny, but supprisingly good. The flesh was a bit soft so we would soak them in water overnight to firm up the.flesh a little bit.

I'm not a fan of eating northern, but I've enjoyed pickled northern quite a bit. Make sure you have some people are around for 1-2 hours after eating them...my farts were epic, I'm glad I had some fishing buddies in the shack to vouch for them! :yes:
