    Hello Jacob, Thanks for the update. Do you find there is interest in catfishing in the area you are, or are you a lone fisherman on the river? You sure seem to have found some productive locations, maybe we rely on live natural baits more so than the local guys in that area.

    Wasnt an overnighter. I usually go every Saturday and Sunday morning at first light till around noon. The spot is very productive and I noticed since we had some good rain the the spring, more cats were able to make it up across the damns they have placed along the river. Once I found the hole it only took me catchin one, re-baiting and tossing it back in before I got another bite.

    The spots gets hit hard during the pre-spawn, but the crowd dies down as the months pass. I personally like the post spawn/fall bite the best. We also have some nice smallmouths and stripers in the river.

    In the post you said you drag the gills into the hole, do you literally drag them through the hole or just drag to where you want them and then let them sit?
