The month of May is the best month to catch catfish. They go on bed typically around Memorial Day, so Andy has it in his head that we will be out every possible minute fishing this month.
Jug fishing isn't a guaranteed way to catch a catfish, but it's a fun way to spend the day while you attempt to do so. A hard-core sport fisherman wouldn't waste his time doing this. However, if you like to eat catfish like we do, it's pretty hard to beat. There were some nice stretches of time in between catches. It seemed like when one hit, you barely had time to get him in before another one was hitting. Memorial Day weekend, a couple of years ago, we jug fished and just about worked our selves to death.
During the down time, I enjoyed listening to and watching the wildlife. This bird perched a few feet away from us and enjoyed the show.
