this may seem like a stupid question to everyone on here...what is a channel? how do i find it? is it in the river or the lake? do i have a better chance of landing some cats in a channel? any help would be greatly appreciated.. Also, i would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped me out on this sit thus far. I started fishing about 1 year ago and i have learned so much since then but i havent learned everything odviously. But the info you guys have given me has been very helpful. I will put up an avatar pic soon i hope...juss waiting to hold up a cat thats worthy of this site..
