    cant help ya out that way but over here in NW and SW most catting in the inland lakes slows down. Prolly over there to-its cold and they go into "slow" mode but im sure u could catch some!!!!!!!!

    Well most inland lakes are regulated with a dam structure of some sort, and this time of year most are lowered to winter if you're looking for cats in lakes this time of year... you might be disappointed.... but the rivers, creeks and streams right now are doing fairly decent, especially in SW ohio right now
  4. I'll be out this weekend for some crappie and might do some work at night from a dock trying to catch some cats at rocky fork.

    we've got a small lake with a dam in our area that holds some channels. do you think they would congregate around the deepest area? will they still eat? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks, danny

    pendog66 It swims its bait

    this should be in the deep holes or if you find a old channel or creek bed. use any type of cutbait and you should be good. but fair warning its slow fishing, and in the rivers we have been doing pretty good so far. granted it wont be fishable for awhile
