EXCITING EXPERIMENTS

    This time of the year we all want to go fishing. Winter has brought us time to think, but now that the catfish are getting more and more active, we can go test our new ideas in reality. Together with a good friend of mine, I went to test some of those new […]

12 PAST THE 2M MARK

MADCAT Prostaffer, Franck Sosa, has been doing some heavy lifting this autumn. In the end of September, Franck spend 7 days on a French river, in the hope of catching big catfish. It is quite fair to say that it went pretty well. In those 7 days of fishing, he ended up landing 12 catfish […]

AUTUMN GLORY

Autumn is here and Sven Van Moen got the tips for a succesful catfishing trip. Two weeks ago the sun was shining bright and the river water was still warm on my favorite big river in the South of France. We still have not had heavy rain, so the water level is at it’s lowest […]

TACTICAL APPROACH FOR BIG CATS

    By Sven Van Moen Last week I went on a two day fishing tour. The river is low, the water clear, which make the fishing itself, very difficult. That is why I should think carefully about the tactical side of the game. The technical side is not all that complicated during low water […]

Beat the heat

After a short midsummer break I was pleased to get back too the big river in the south of France. Especially because I really love summer breakline fishing, even though summer isn’t always the best fishing season. I know catfish can be quite difficult during summer heat. Very often they are inactive during daytime and […]

Majestic fish on A-STATIC SPIN & JIG

Franck Sosa is a respected catfishangler, who dared to go out in this summer heat in pursue of cats. He has been using MADCAT SPIN & JIG System from the float tube. Here is his words on his most recent trip. Franck Sosa With the current hot weather, the float tube is a good craft […]

MADCAT wins at EFTTEX

We did it! We won the Best New Metal Lure Award for our new A-STATIC Rattlin Spoon. Thank you all for the great support we get from all of you. We are so happy that more people are tagging along on this incredible journey. The past year, MADCAT have been working on new innovation to […]

Manipulating catfish

Anglers frequently ask me if I, being the product-manager of MADCAT, really believe that the new A-STATIC concept (covering metal parts with a rubber coating, to minimize the electromagnetic field) really helps fool catfish. Honestly? I can’t know for sure. Nobody knows. Humankind has studied animals that appeal to its imagination, such as whales, dolphins and sharks extensively but about the ugly and economically uninteresting catfish not so much is known…

MADCAT INLINE RATTLERS

Since the very first introduction, the MADCAT® INLINE RATTLER is a spectacular lure. In every way you fish this lure, you can wait on an attack. I cast this lure many time on my home water in the Netherlands. I love the static art of catfishing, but when I spend some time on the riverbanks, […]

Hard edges, soft lines…

Leaders and Splicing “Again? How´s this even possible? I am using a braided 0,60mm main line… How can it break so easily?” That pretty much sums up my reaction when I started targeting catfish a few years back and made contact with the first big ones in River Rhine in Germany. Back then I used […]

Dancing in the sun!

Before my planned night fishing session I anchored the boat in close distance to a deep spot. I was pretty sure there had to be some decent catfish in there. The current was strong and that´s why I decided for the MADCAT Stiff Vibra Shad with an 80g jig head. My plan was to guide […]

Things always seem to happen when you least expect them…

Everyone who is out there regularly fishing for catfish knows the problem of getting bait fish. We had enough bait fish for the first night, but after some beautiful cats and several attacks our stock on bait fish run short quickly! So the next day we had to take care of stocking up again. Equipped […]

In the current…

With the aid of a MADCAT subfloat you´re able to present your rig in different distances to the bottom of the river. Depending on the size and weight of the bait and the current of the river, you choose the suiting components to build the rig. With varying the size of the subfloat and the […]

Does it always have to be the hardcore way?

Catfishing… most of the time this means battling wind and bad weather conditions, pulling all-nighters, ha¬ving to worry about sand, mud, wet clothes and improvising to withstand countless mosquitoes or other vermin. Some love to do exactly this, literally living in the nature, dealing with the dirt and doing sessions, no „normal“ person would ever […]

MADCAT Clonk Teaser

MADCAT Clonk Teaser by Marc Brune The MADCAT Clonk Teaser was created to guide the catfish to the bait, get it to take it and getting hooked on the attached treble hook. It is also great for areas where the catfish are already clued up and usually not responding anymore when clonks are used. They […]
