    I can think of a few quick and quiet places close to you..Nimisilla and Walborn. Both are pretty good for catfish. Berlin also has a good number of them, just a little farther away.

    The bite is starting to pick up at Spencer. Springfield Lake on Rt. 224 is usually a decent place.

    I almost hate to give out a good hole, but since he's a first timer you need a spot. Highlandtown is a great hole for channels. Haven't tried it yet this yr., but we always catch them while fishing for bass and gills. This time of yr. cut bait or stink bait usually works. Trolling a worm harness works good too. Lake is trolling motor only.
