Alrighty, so in 2019, I went all through the year catching fish, mainly big blue catfish, and I never even explained my setups or the gear that I used. So this video is all about the gear I use to catch these whiskery giants of the deep.

Great video as always and love the energy. I also dont talk about my equipment on my channel, I use pretty basic equipment definitely not expensive. But the whole steel leader thing, I've been doing that for awhile because I be loosing my mind when I have a big cat and my line snapped. It made the world of a difference in my catch ratio. I also use nothing but braid when I fish for Catfish. But great video again bro. BALTIMORE REPRESENT

Lol. I really expected you to say like a 200 pound leader line

That's right yo!
SLC =Steel Leader Clique!!
Man I switched to steel leaders after I was at Fletchers in 90 degree weather catching only 2 fish in 12 hours from the bank. I hooked into a monster catfish that outsmarted me. He took me down and rubbed his head on some rocks, snapped my line, and I was devastated!! Since then I use a nice 85 pound coated steel leader (not a 300 pound marlin steel leader) and 85 test braid. Another plus is when I get a snag, I just reel in the slack, put a glove on, grab the line and lean at a 45 degree angle like Micheal Jackson did in the smooth criminal video and I'm getting my gear back and a brach on the hook!!

Walmart has the team catfish hooks.... Only hooks I use

Hobo use monster set up. I'm 20 lb mono main line (cheapest line I can buy at Walmart or on Amazon). I use a variety of hooks depending on price. I'm currently using 10/0 mustad demon most of the time, but will size down as necessary depending on the bite pattern. Let's get back out there soon!

The only thing i dont get is the line size. I caught a 20 pound blue in 80 pound test and it wasnt even a fight. I grew up liking the fight to much to go that big any more. It takes the dun out of it for me


Very Helpful Video
Keep up the Great Work
