Last year was my first real attempt @ fishing and I love it. I want to target channel cats first this year. I have never eatten cat fish and people tell me these r the best eats. I was wondering do you guys fish shallow or deep and what times r best pre spring? Like now till water warms up. I cought a few last year of night crawlers (and really bad presentation) and after learning from you guys and other sites this winter I think i can do a LOT better this year. I cant wait to get started!
