plenty of flounders and the odd sole towards the bridge i,ve heard, if thats what you,re into i,d try Barton on these big tides, Just beyond the grass for a chance of sole on maddies and small hooks. Chris

Was that from the Humber Macky??

Wanna hope they don't get a good foot hold if it was, look what they've done to the Ebro, about the only fish left is Cats :)

That's how it all started in the Ebro, i think it was some German anglers introduced a few babies, after about 10 years, they'd completely taken over, there's little else in the Ebro now other than Cats and large Carp, the big cats will take VERY LARGE Carp, whole.

I *thought* Wels Catfish were fresh water only, but if that one came from salt water, they must either be able to adapt or survive in Salt water, maybe only for a short time and the one(s) caught came in from the freshwater rivers and survuved long enough to get caught, I dunno :)

I've had a quick google and they do appear to be a freshwater species with the ability to survive in salt water long enough to spawn in the spring and summer months:clap3:,

there was a dead catfish washed up in bay 26 either earlier this year or back end of last. Mate of mine had a piccy on his phone, it was a beast.

Conservative estimates put it at over 50lb !!! Now that would pull ya string!

As already mentioned though they eat everything! They would well and truly dessimate the river stocks if they did get a foothold further up in any of the rivers that feed into the Humber.

i think there is more catfish about in our river systems than we realise..
You're right Bob, there are.
I've heard of cats being caught by anglers and also in the weed cutter/collector boats that the EA use in a few rivers and many reports of sightings, they don't seem to be able to breed too well in our rivers for some reason, lets hope they don't get the hang of it one day :)

Get a dead roach on the end and see if you can hook him :)
