Lake Tawakoni catfish guide Tony Pennebaker with one of many ‘eater’ size catfish landed this past week. Trophy blue catfish are biting well but on this trip, Luke was after the makings of a big fish fry and that’s exactly what Pennebaker produced.

As I walked up on the dock this past week at Lake Tawakoni Marina, I was greeted by catfish guide Tony Pennebaker. I could tell by the expression on his face that he had something humorous on his mind. “Fryers or trophy” he asked as I walked up to his guide boat. “Knowing you, Luke I think I already know what your answer will be!”

This week's guest is Lake Tawakoni guide Tony Pennebaker with Thunder Cove Guide Service. Tony has learned that trophy size blue catfish can be caught during late summer and he and his clients have been boating some big ones on freshly caught shad. Late fall and winter is traditionally the big blue season but Tony has tapped into a summer bite that will have many catfish anglers rethinking how they fish for the big ones.

Luke speaks with Lake Tawakoni guide Tony Pennebaker this week about the catfish action on the lake this summer, and landing some perfect for the fryer.

Catching and eating “Fryer” size catfish

by Luke Clayton

I was well into my twenties before I set down to a platter of catfish fillets. I was raised eating catfish either fried whole or cut into ‘steaks’. My Dad probably didn’t even know what a ‘fillet’ was. Had he known, I’m positive he would have considered the practice of filleting a waste of good fish!
