High Plains Outdoors: Catchin' Big Blues

Aug 23, 2019

This week, Luke discusses catching giant blue catfish during the summer months (right now).

Traditionally, the big blues are caught during late fall and the winter months.

Lake Tawakoni guide Tony Pennebaker told Luke during a spring fishing trip that he felt confident that the big blues should go on a dependable bite in August, after they finish spawning and disperse widespread over the lake.

Sure enough, plenty of 'bigguns' are being landed right now by drifting big chunks of freshly caught shad over submerged humps and ridges 18-24 feet deep.
