FEBRUARY

Catfish, Lake Texoma


If there is one month out of the year that has proved "best" for blue catfish, it's February, and anglers only have to look at the number of boats on the lake to see that.


Big blue catfish averaging from 30 to 60 pounds are caught there annually during February, with a large majority of them taken by jugliners who set their lines along the main river channel and creek tributaries on the upper reaches of the big border lake.

A lot of big blues also are caught by drift-fishermen. Stout rods and lines are the name of the game because it isn't unusual to catch one weighing 50 pounds or more. Live shad and perch drifted on Carolina rigs with No. 5 to No. 8 hooks are favored by many drift-anglers who target the edge of the main river channel or along edges of humps and other dropoffs.
