    Bass, crappie and bluegill and trout only but never really tried for cats
    I have heard you can and when people drive by they ask if I have caught any cats and most people i talk to out there about 25% are fishing cats

    I tried stink bait, liver and crawlers out there last year. It was mossy on the bottom. Maybe another area could have been better maybe:confused2:

    I'm not positive on this, but I don't think there are any catfish in Avacado Lake. I've caught a couple trout off the bank there before. The water there I think may be a little too cold for the cats. I could be wrong, but I have never heard of anybody catching cats there. They have cats at Pine Flat though.

    I think during the summer you have to be out of there by 10:00pm. Not too sure, but I think that's what it was when I was last there(2 yrs ago). It would be interesting to see if there is any cats in there, but I don't think so.

    Don't forget to put out some trout PowerBait or a shad based attractant. They will bite at night and often it's the bigger ones that are more active.

    Yeah, as a matter of fact they do on occasion , even though I was referring to the trout that are no doubt in that lake.
    Not only that but Berkley makes power bait for cats as well as trout.
    I always carry some Catfish power bait to add to my cut bait when the bite is slow.

    I have caught cats at Eastmen and Hensley lakes on power bait. It was by accident:roll_eyes:

    Hey Robb,

    I was told by someone a long time ago that
    Fish bite for two reason & two reason only & that's:
    "Hunger or Reaction" but "Never by accident".
    (Think about it Buddy)
    :wink:
