    Just curious to know if anyone here in the midwest are catching any cats in this cold weather. I see a lot of ice fisherman, and am just curious if any of you have hit on any through the ice. Also, is it true its better to use a jig in the winter with a shiner minnow or stick to the bottom with a rig? I have heard two different stories just curious what you people think

    Not sure how many shows you watch on TV, but I have seen them take cats through the ice with a minnow on a jig, or with larger suckers used for pike and walleye. I will be hitting a power plant lake here as soon as it opens up for my winter cat fix.

    A buddy of mine has caught a few nice blues and flatheads this winter at Baldwin Lake.
