    This one is for all you guys that fish Devil's Elbow (hope it opens back up by spring!). What type of rig do you usually use there, and do you fish different rods at different levels? Also, what depth seems to produce the most?

    Thanks. I'm looking forward to your answers!

    I use a three way rig. I try to put one out in the edge of the channel, and another on the old road bed that runs thru there. Reaching the channel from shore is a pretty long cast, so a longer rod will help. I can make it with an 8ft rod but it is a hard throw. The road bed and the ditch beside it do produce some nice catfish and stripers too.

    I usually fish 3 rods. 1 Rod up close and 2 rods as far out in the channel as I can get it.

    Thanks, guys. When Bo and I go there, we usually fish 3 apiece, like what you said John. But everytime I try the three way rig, I get a massive tangle. I'll just have to keep trying.

    Sometimes at Devils elbow...I use a carolina rig. Not much twisting there.

    That's what Bo and I usually run. Every once in a while I get a wild hair and decide to try something else that I've heard about on here, but I seem to have better luck with the Carolina. Thanks for the advice guys. I've got cabin fever BAD!
