The Search for Trophy Catfish Continues...
My name is Shane Williams.  My son (Evan) and I enjoy pursuing blue and flathead catfish on the Mississippi River.  We do also like to fish the Tennessee and Ohio rivers, as well as KY Lake.  This website is a way of organizing pictures, stories and being able to share information with those interested in catfishing.

November 11, 2017

Evan and I got out for a couple hours this past Saturday.  The river was 12 feet higher than the last time we were out.  The current was ripping!  We ended up anchoring in a couple spots, as drifting didn't seem reasonable.  Even then, it was hard to stay anchored.  We managed to catch this nice 30 lber.

August 19, 2017 -- Had a great day with Ken Harbin.  Evan wasn't feeling well, so he stayed in.  Ken and I caught 13 fish total.  The top 5 weighed 102 lbs, which included this 50 lb Blue Catfish at the end of the day!  Another highlight of the trip was the triple that we had within the first 15 minutes of our fishing.  Two 14 lbs and a 15 at the same time.  All blue cats.  It was a frantic time!

August 5, 2017 - Another great morning with Evan on the Ohio River. We caught 5 blue cats: 7, 8, 12, 17 and 25 lbs. With the mid 50's temps this morning, it was quite comfortable out.
