    i dont tell the exact place i fish but is between fayettville and wilmington. there are good place to fish and no you dont have to be in deep water. the cat i got was in less than 15 foot of water.

    In the winter months do you find the blue cats by using the depth finder or do you basically fish from hole to hole?

    I fish the Cape fear in or near the locks at Elizabethtown, but I always fish during the day and I always use just plain old chicken livers. I have never fished the CF at night, but I have usually done allright on the smaller cats (2 to 8 lber's) just fishing off of the banks. I will probably have to give the night fishing a try this year though. Good luck to you all.

    I have heard of this goldfish by word of mouth or in books.My question is are they the ones sold in the pet shops or slang for a different bait fish?

    What you'll find in bait stores that looks like a goldfish isnt really a goldfish.
    It's called an orange toughy and they are tough. They'll live forever on a hook it seems like.

    where did you hear that rumor. If someone did that where i was fishing at I would throw them out of the boat, and it was not my idea it was Teenie's.
