Best time of the year for cat fishing
Dec 07th, 2010, 7:19am
 
We are looking forward to coming to Lake Tawakoni for the first time.  When is the best time for cat fishing.  When are the big cats on the move for spawning.  Do they bite on stink bait?  Travel plans can be from  Feb. to April.   Smiley

the earlier the better for big blues in your time frame
the cats here spawn around mothers' day
best bait is cut shad
if you are not good with a cast net- go to an asian market or fiesta foods and buy buffalo (the fish) and fillet out strips

If you can make it,,I'd get up here as soon as possible!The big un's are being caught in the shallows,near creek mouths and channel edges.Gizzard shad or fresh  buffalo is the best bait for the hawgs!Good luck on your trip,whenever you do make it.Please have fun,and stay safe!ALWAYS WEAR YOUR PFD!! No one is drown-proof!

We are scheduled for fishing the month of March.  What do you think we should expect at that time/ Cheesy

The wind will probably be blowing pretty hard thru march. It will be tough fishing,fighting the wind/waves,,but the cats will be biting none the less.
