Pecatonica River, Lafayette County
Don't do much walleye fishing in the summer... just spring and fall. (floating jighead with crawler or minnow- quarter to eighth oz. slip sinker.)
Catfish all summer long... 2-3 lb'ers on sonny's blood stink bait ( I use a #10 or #12 treble hook with a small sponge) If you want the bigger ones use chubs or I really like sucker cut bait. For the cut bait, I use a bigger treble hook #8 or #6---big chunk of filleted sucker and at least a quarter to half oz. slip sinker.
By way up, I mean the mifflin or mineral point branch. By way down, I mean to the Argyle dam.
I live in Darlington and grew up north of Belmont, so I have spent the better part of 54 years fishing this river. Believe me, it has way more fish than people think, and some lunkers too... caught 5 nice cats last time out...(2-6 lbs)
