Fishing for Catfish during a MASSIVE FLOOD

S’ABONNER 82 KThe rain has been non-stop. We ended up getting close to ten inches of rain. As a result, Chickamauga Dam is spilling close to 200,000 cfs – that’s the most I’ve ever seen it. The fish tend to congregate in slower moving water (i.e. creek mouths, backwaters, current seams). I fished the mouth of North Chickamauga Creek on the lock side of the dam. I was only able to manage one blue catfish. It was a tough bite, considering I was fishing the day right after a front. When: February 24, 2019 Where: Mouth of North Chickamauga Creek (Below Chickamauga Dam on the lock side) Time: 11:30am – 2:30pm Current Level: Moderate current Bait: Cut skipjack Tackle: 7’6” Shattered Cat rod with an Okuma Classic XT CLX-300L/CLX-300La baitcaster levelwind reel spooled with 40 lb monofilament line carolina rigged with an 80 lb monofilament leader down to a Team Catfish 8/0 double action circle hook and a santee cooper rig with the demon dragon peg float with an 80 lb monofilament leader down to a Team Catfish 8/0 double action circle hook Method: Fishing from the bank
