    congrats 1st of all and for fishing the canal take some no roll sinkers or just a LOT of sinkers

    for bait I've been using chubbs, sunfish (cut and live) and bullheads (cut and live)

    don't forget the beer :smile2:

    I usually fish between headworks park and the first siphon. and unless I was there with you I couldn't show you my good spots(just to hard to describe)

    but anywhere on the canal will produce catfish if you wait long enuff.

    where are you driving from?

    I went to the headworks with some friends one time. We weren't catching anything so I took some concrete string, hooks, and bait and went down below and fished the river instead. Needless to say I kicked everybody's butt. I ended up catching enough to throw a fish fry for 25 people. I kid not that was probably the best set line trip I had until I went down the blue last year.
