Lockport is about 20 miles north of the Winnipeg airport on the
RED RIVER OF THE NORTH. My brother and I went there for 6 days of
fishing. Stayed at "Cat's on the Red". Rented a boat for the time
we where there. The River was in perfect shape. The weather also
co-operated in being mild to warm most of the time. We were told
of another 2 guys from KY. that had been up there a week before
had caught over 350 cats! They must have spent 12 hours a day
fishing for you can NOT haul those huge channel cats in a boat in
just a couple minutes.
I must says having to use barbless hooks works out very well. We
did NOT lose a fish by the hook coming out . Once the fish was in
the boat it sure made it so easy to get the hook out. So you can
lift the big fish up for the picture. By all means take your
camera for your pals won't believe you without the proof of the
We did O.K. landing over 70 Channel cats most over 20 lbs. My
brother caught the largest one of 29 lbs.!! Your odds of getting
a Channel cat that large out of the Ohio River are very slim. My
brother got around 45 and I landed around 28 cats. As a bonus
caught around 8 white perch from 5-12 lbs.
We caught 26 cats between 20 and 25 lbs another 16 between 25 and
29lbs. Total weight for the week came to around 1,313 lbs. Total
of 73 fish the average came out 19.1 lbs!!! That is what
catfishing DREAMS are made of.
Around 90 percent of the fish were caught from the boat. However
we did catch a number of them from the bank. The first night
there we fished right in front of the lodge and caught 3 or 4
nice cats. My brother biggest cat was caught right at the boat
dock. He almost lost his pole when that monster cat took off with
the bait. I hope this has been of some help to anyone thinking
about a trip for the GREATEST Channel cat fishing experience
going. For more information on lodging and guide service cost
drop me an e-mail So get a couple of your friends together to
split the cost. For I am sure you ALL WILL experience a TRIP OF A
