Silurus Glanis, Wels Catfish, Chris and tom’s visit to the River Ebro with catfishingcaspe

Chris and Tom’s visit coincided with the River Ebro’s highest water levels I have witnessed. The carp of course were still out spawning. Leaving us no backup fish to target we had to go all out for catfish and hope the rising water levels had not disturbed the feeding. Day 1 was slow with only 4 Silurus glanis being caught. Day 2 was a complete reversal with 19 catfish being caught. we lost 4 to Zebra mussels cutting lines and hook pulls. to say the day was frantic is an understatement. the first chance the lads had for lunch was 1400hrs. In total 19 Wels catfish were caught the largest being 102lbs a new PB for Tom. Chris had a new Pb of 70lbs after losing a monster catfish to zebra muscles.
