Catching GIANT Fish in a FLOODED Creek

With the river blown out, I fished Chickamauga Creek with my buddy Phil. I was able to cast net about two dozen threadfin shad, which we used as bait. Our hunch was to catch catfish, but the freshwater drum would not keep off our baits. They were fun to catch, especially the big ones. Don't ever underestimate the potential of a creek...you just never know what could be at the end of your line. When: March 9, 2018 Where: Chickamauga Creek (Chattanooga, TN) Time: 10:30am - 12:30pm Conditions: Breezy, moderate current Bait: Threadfin shad Tackle: Gander Mountain "Competitor" medium action spinning rod spooled with 10 lb monofiliament line and a Shakespeare 7'0 medium heavy Wild Cat rod with a Daiwa spinning reel spooled with 20 lb monofilament line carolina rigged with a 20 lb monofilament leader line Method: Fishing from a dock Share this video: https://youtu.be/QskcCUN0NC4 Subscribe here for fishing videos every week: http://bit.ly/chattcatsfishing Follow Chatt Cats Fishing on Social Media: Google+: https://plus.google.com/+JoeJellison Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/chattcats Instagram: https://instagram.com/chattcatsfishing Snapchat: Chatt Cats Fishing Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChattCats Purchase the fishing gear I use here: Fishing line for big catfish: http://amzn.to/2peqEut No roll sinkers: http://amzn.to/2qVPYlt Catfish hooks: http://amzn.to/2qUDuew Catfish reel: http://amzn.to/2qLw3cx Ugly Stik Catfish rod: http://amzn.to/2pVH61s Silver Cat Magnum catfish rod: http://amzn.to/2pevkAx Nite Stick catfish rod: http://amzn.to/2q0kOKt Fish gripper: http://amzn.to/2pVxkw8 Big game landing net: http://amzn.to/2pCDrHa Depth finder: http://amzn.to/2rjj3r4 Marabou jigs for catching skipjack: http://amzn.to/2h5mw9j Demon dragon lure: http://amzn.to/2A0VlsE Cast net: http://amzn.to/2HnffNG Purchase my video recording equipment I use here: GoPro Hero 4 Silver: http://amzn.to/2pex7pp LED light for GoPro: http://amzn.to/2qUFrHY Microphone for GoPro (Chesty): http://amzn.to/2peNsu4 Microphone for GoPro: http://amzn.to/2q0y6GW Microphone Windscreen Muff: http://amzn.to/2qUJ4O0 SD Card: http://amzn.to/2q0hZcf Video editing program: http://amzn.to/2pYjERM Purchase a Chatt Cats t-shirt here: http://chattcats.storenvy.com Purchase some Katfish clothing here: http://katfishclothing.com Use this one time coupon code CHATTCATS to get 5% off each item in your order Click here http://mtbfish.com/chatt to get $10 off your first Mystery Tackle Box using code CHATTCATS Want to fish with me?

Those are leaches, put some salt on them to make them let go, then kill them, they are killing that fish.

Those were huge drum. Nice catch. Also yes those were lampreys on that bass. It probably would have ended up dying if you didnt remove them. They arent like leeches. Leeches will eventually fall off , lampreys stay attached and continue to feed and live on the fish till it dies.

Man those lampreys make the skin crawl lol. Ive caught a few bass and crappie with one of those things attached. Never seen 2 on one fish before. Good job removing them that poor spot wouldn't have made it for long with 2 of those blood suckers on it.

If I remember the last time I ate them, they had a super firm white meat and were pretty good. I wouldn't keep any of them over 5 lbs for personal preference though.
Crappie Hippie
Crappie Hippie - 2 years ago
just keep them COLD...everyone around here who complains about drum dragged them around on a stringer, pop'em into a live well or a cooler, the meat is rich and goes off flavor if it gets to warm...it's the same thing as channel bass or black drum in coastal fishing, good stuff in a freshwater version...
