When you’re out fishing saltwater and you catch a catfish, you don’t even want to tell anyone but not today because we’re fishing in the catfish capital of the universe – Des Allemands!
“After two cold fronts, it’s unbelievable. The fish get a little bigger, so you’re catching a little nicer fish,” said Capt. Clyde Folse of Crappie Psychic Lures. “I don’t know why that is but I’ve been doing it for over 45 years and normally the end of September, October, November, even into December is really good.”
If you watch our report, you may be wondering why we’re catching such small fish, well we’re actually targeting these small fish.
“The smaller the blue cat, the better. So I love ten inch to fourteen inch blue cat,” said Capt. Clyde. “I find that’s the best-tasting fish. They don’t have any strong taste to them yet.”
One other really good thing about catching catfish is the limit is one hundred per day per person and you can keep twenty-five under the minimum size so there’s plenty of catfish to go with your hush puppies.
