Monster catfish defeated at a water temperature of 8 degrees

Tostedt. At the beginning of March, angling guide and Black Cat brand manager Stefan Seuß headed to the Po along with tour guests Ludwig and Max Heller. Spring is a particularly interesting time of year on Italy’s longest river. The period when the water temperatures are slowly climbing towards 10 degrees is renowned for monster catfish activity. At this time, Stefan Seuß likes to use small sub floats (10-gram Black Cat underwater float), which he mounts directly behind the baitfish on the leader. This causes the bait to hover just off the bottom, precisely where most of the prey of catfish...

Austria's winter gold

Tostedt. This winter, Austrian Radical team angler Matthias Pirker wanted to set himself a true challenge. His goal was to land a monster carp under difficult winter conditions. The acid test was to take place on an Austrian water. However, landing an XXL carp in winter would require some careful consideration. He hatched his plan, which included details on bait and feeding times and opted for the colourful “Radical Yellow Zombie” boilie.
