If it STINKS they will eat it, the higher in protein the better. I recon it would be harder makeing a list of what a catfish won't eat. I've cought catfish (vundu and sharptooth) on soap in africa, and watched them eating the contents of the houseboat toilet when it's emptyed into the lake.

That Siberian is mind blowing, (is it a Houso?, looks like one it's that big :shock: ) you are on SOME water fella Wink are you sure you live in england? That has to be the biggest S/S in the country or there abouts, the cat is nice but compaired to the sturg it realy is average.

Hat's of to you fella, top brace of fish, in any country!

Rulez Tim is fair with anybody that fishes there, unless you do stupid things against his rules then you will be booted off..........i like that cause you know where you stand...... anybody want contact number to fish just pm me...

truely an awesome pair of fish top angling to you .
if my memory serves me right witch lake is around my neck of the woods at edited due to our eastern european fish thieves and is £35 a day and contains big cats, carp ,sturgeon, and pike

i think did i read there was some squit over the sturgeon after some one reported a capture and i believe he got banned for i think using trebles .
The EA were meant to be getting involved i think and they were going to remove the sturgeon and if they could not they would be destroyed .

i,m assuming as you have just visited the place this is no longer going to go ahead about the sturgeon ??


regards
kevin

They do hibernate in winter. Spring is the time to start thinking about planning your first catfish trip of the year. Its also the best time to take advantage of them going on a good feeding spell. I have found the hotter the weather the better the chances of catching a catfish. Other than that get on a plane and head to Spain Wink

All depends on what you’re after. If tour fishing for carp and cats 18mm. if you want just cats the biggest you can get. Small fish peck at them and break them down a cat of about 15lb will eat a hook with 2 x 22mm on without even thinking about it. But I think these are better when targeting cats over the standard pellet.
