My brother in law, mike (newfisherman) and myself hit knox lake saturday night for a few hours of channelcatting. We were gonna fish the lake but it is still frozen solid so we went below the spillway where the water is moving and unable to freeze. It was kinda windy but not too cold and we threw whatever bait you could imagine shad, liver, gizzards, and yes oh yes hotdogs lol j/k anyhow we never set eyes on a channelcat BUT we did end up catching four pretty decent sized bullhead catfish...Never caught anything huge and obviously from most of our baits selection we didnt care...we had a great time and as soon as it warms back up into the fourties again we'll be right back out there!
I think when you get to get out, esp. in the winter... It makes you appreciate, and enjoy it alittle more sometimes even if the fishing isn't in its peak season. Congrats on getting out, and catching some cats as well man... rollo
I ran over to Cheery Hill Saturday, if I could figure out how to cast under the ice I would of had it made.lol I never thought of the spillway at Knox, or I might of been there. Maybe next time....:bulgy-eyes:
