    i know that catfish come closer to the bank at night to feed, but does weather change that any? i ask this because i have been catching a lot of nice fish here recently, but when i went out last night in the rain i couldn't get any in the shallows that i've been fishing. all i managed to get was a small striper..

    btw i broke my PB channel a couple days ago, i got a 15! it's the same fish in my pic :big_smile:

    Usually during stormy weather the pressure will drop..When the pressure drops the fish will normally be shallow and biting..It may have been something else that affected the fish..

    when your having trouble like that put on a slip float and adjust as needed until you find the depth they are holding at.

    During or after the rain, fish the biggest feeder creek on the lake. :wink:

    If there were no channels in the shallows you were fishing it very well could have been a flathead chasing small stripers/baitfish. Channels will stay clear of a flathead.
