I'm kind of curious guys about your opinions. as you know from my monotonous fishing reports... I've had a lot of skunks with many local places Not panning out. so far, I've tried 11 places and Only one is reliable. I'm thinking its time for a change to my weekend routine. theres seem two logical option the first is to drive south; catfish DO seem sparse up here! perhaps just TOO sparse; too much cold water from the darned dam! I'd probably have done this a long time ago but gas is SO expensive. so I'm wondering is this alternative better. I have a canoe. and I have checked to see if I can go upstream a bit in it. during typical summer flows- no problem!! thing is I only fish at night and I don't have lights. I don't know squat about what kind of lights I need. I'm sure its not difficult; but do you think that the extra mobility of a canoe would make a real difference? If I'm not catching cats in spot after spot... would a canoe really make a difference. Everyone is telling me, that catfish feed in shallow shoreline structure at night anyway. leaning towards the drive. what do you think. Probably more a question about whether the mobility of a boat makes a big difference.
