Manitoba Hot Bite - Arm-breaking Catfish Action
Many an angler has been known to throw in the towel early and call it a day after a few hours spent targeting channel catfish on the north Red River. The reason isn’t a slow bite; in fact, it is the exact opposite. People just plain tap out once they have battled and hauled in a handful of these solid beasts on rod and reel. With catfish regularly surpassing 25 pounds being the norm rather than the exception, it is understandable why anglers gleefully complain of sore arms and call timeout to catch their breath.
