    i have been eyeing at this one spot for awhile now and its got this really awesome looking cover for several nice size cats(comparing to what i see at BPS/cabelas tank).. its a log that still have roots attach to it closer to the edge with the tops in the water out about 15ft or more.. i lost a bunch of leads there gettin a feel of it..
    i planned on fishing there several days if need be, because this area doesn't get much pressure from anyone including boats or fishermen.. lots of bluegills, shad are around the area as well, so i think i'll hook that on for bait..
    maybe, just maybe i can wrestle somethin up from that snag.. :)

    like I said, I don't know if I am a catfish dood or not, but fish will move around. you may sit on a spot for hours without any luck, but you may also move around a bit and not have luck. I would say to give it time......and also hit it at different times

    If you want to catch LARGE cats in a lake, you must be willing to stay put for at the very least ALL NIGHT. Then go back again in the same spot ALL night. Hey , sounds boring, but that is how you get the 40-60 pounders in a lake .... If you are fishing a lake that you KNOW has large cats, then find the depth of water ( usually 10-15' deep ) and wood for cover and the big boys will show up sooner of later. Cats are like anything else. They move to feed and they usually will follow a pattern. Lets say you set up at 8 pm and a large cat just went by where you just threw your bait . He woon't be back until probably the morning or the following night ...POSSIBLY. Large cats are territorial ...That should tell you something............. I'm no expert , but I do know that .......... :D Good Luck crappielooker and don't get pulled into the lake. These are cats you are talkin about. Not them bugle mouthed bass................. ;)
