    I want to go have some fun at a little pond with the bullheads and channels can still do that.

    I am not sure about the bullheads, but I have caught channels in ponds that had some ice on them. One pond has a strong running pipe that feeds it and hardly ever freezes up on that end and I could catch a fish or two within minutes anytime on fresh cut bait. Another pond I fished only once and was not sure if there was anything in it and did not have any decent bait. I found a can of corn and caught several channel cats on corn right away and that was in January in Northwest NC(cold)

    Yes, you can still catch cats but will have to work harder at it. The bite slows down. The cats will not come to you. You have to find them. Also, you will need to down size your bait.
