I'm taking the wife and kids to Charles Mill friday evening on a nightfishing trip with a rented pontoon boat and was wondering if I might be able to get some general locations of the channel cats. I'm not looking to overtake a honey hole, I just need north end/south end; marina/dam type of directions to put the crew on some fish. I remember when I was younger that the area just south of the 430 bridge used to hold some nice fishing but with the previous dredging I don't know if that has changed. Also, are shad catchable with a rod and reel or do I need to invest in a casting net? I seem to remember the shad schooling at Gordon Park. Is there a baitshop that sells live shad? Thanks.
