catfishing in essex

Post by naquant on Wed Jan 13, 2010 1:30 pm

hello everyone

i have done a bit of catfishing but have not yet caught one, i have hooked into one before but unfortunately it snapped my line. I was just wondering if anyone knew a good place to fish for catfish in essex.

many thanks

Naquant is my great nephew, and he's a smart lad, so a word in his shell like might not go amiss, methinks.

i did think he was a young lad and now you mention it i remember him saying he was ken's nephew.

he seems to be doing well at his young tender age, he's got a nice carp and he's hooked a cat which is more than i've done. maybe i'll get him to whisper a few things into my shell hahaha

good stuff mate. i've tried and failed with all those baits. i was using fresh salmon fillets hair rigged and got plauged with carp. i've got afew more tactics to try this year, mostly fishing up in the water. a lot of catfish fall to baits/live fished just under the surface so that'll be my next approach when the weather warms up

I did a 24 hour session on Withy Pool a few years ago with Cats in mind. I was told that Liver would probably be a good choice of bait so I bought a pound or so. During the day nothing happened, but once it was dark the alarms didn't stop!! Despite all the pick ups and short runs I never connected with a single fish. When it got light I mentioned this to the angler fishing nearby, he just laughed! Carp! he said, they pick up the Liver and suck the blood out of it, drives you mad sometimes.

thats why they use liver in a boilie but in kevin maddocks book IN PURSUIT OF CARP AND CATFISH he said he did well at withypool (before he bought it) on whole squid. But i have caught carp on squid rings as well
