    Just wondering what is the best bait for cats in Phillpott? Wondering if there is any shad or yellow perch there. Any information would be helpful.

    I know there are yellow perch, If I remember it also has alewives. I have not fished Phillpot In several years, but plan to some this summer. I used to catch tons of 15-20 inch channels on livers and nightcrawlers.

    I live about 20 minutes from Phillpott and have never fished it much for cats. Go to Buggs instead. A friend of mine caught a 34 lb. blue while fishing for bass at Phillpott. Guess I need to try fishing closer to home sometime.
