I'm faced with a dilemma fellas and I'm hoping for some help. I have 4 days left before my foot surgery which will leave me incapacitated (no more bank fishing) for at least 3 months. I have yet to catch my first channel of the year, despite targeting them (albeit not exclusively) since April. I've had a few runs and a few nibbles but can't seem to catch one. After yesterday's skunk at Buckeye Lake, I'm a little perturbed to say the least. I'm wondering if anyone can provide some advice. I've been using shrimp, minnows, and crawlers and nothing. I don't have access to fresh shad and I have yet to have any luck on chicken livers. It may be the times or places where I target them. I've tried on the bottom and suspending in the water column. I've tried Alum, Hoover, and Buckeye. Needless to say I'm getting a little desperate. If anyone has any advice on how I can beat the catfish skunk, I'm all ears.
