Catching Catfish During The Spring Transition

Fishing has been tough for the past few weeks. As temperatures begin to warm up, the catfish become a little more active and start getting into their spring patterns. I went out for a night bite with my buddy, Phil, hoping to catch a giant blue catfish. The flow was spilling 48,000 cfs - great conditions for anchor fishing. We fished three spots and caught two respectable blue catfish. Water temperature was 51 degrees. Who's all ready for warmer weather? I sure am!

Have you notice any external parasites on the catfish (in particular) down there.
I've some pics of 1/4" patasites I've seen infesting a couple of fish.
The parasites are tube shaped like a transparent worn with three hooks in their mouths that they latch on with, usually around the fish's fins & mouth.

Any advice for cold water catfishing water temp 38-48 degrees ice just coming off the river or would I be better off waiting until the water warms up more

I honestly fish for catfish through the ice in Nebraska just using a minnow on bottom but I have found in my own experience that the bite starts sooner in the rivers after ice out than it does in the lakes. I think the water in the river warms up a little quicker than the Lakes.

What kind of catfish are in your rivers? If you have blue catfish in there then you can fish all year round for those. If it's channel and flathead catfish, then you can still catch some channel catfish. I recommend using fresh cut shad if you can find them.
