So I'm gonna try fishing for some Channel Cats (yep,first time) and I was wondering if I get lucky! how do I clean them for eating???? How the heck do I cook them? From what I've heard I don't think I'll be eating anything over 5Lbs. Any one recomend a rod, test pound line and sinker I should use? If mines not up to par for cat fishing I'd rather not snap it. I'm told and have seen photos of cats cought in our area they're huge! I also know our lake is 20ft deep or more in areas. Should I go at night? Its winter in our area now is this a good time our should I wait till spring? Sorry for all the questions but this site seems like the place to ask! :big_smile: Thanks for your time!!
