    I wondered if I had the species right. I got so excited I didn't really notice. It just felt good that a man without a boat could catch a decent fish and put it back in the water to fight again.

    Nice fish Michael! Good job on the catch and release! Saying it's a Channel Cat.

    Nice Channel looks real healthy too. Must be in good habitat. If theres one theres more.

    In my Opinion the Marina is worthless. I have seen it where you could walk across it (the mud would suck you in). Now there are thousands of mussel clams in there, when it is low you can see hundreds of their shells perhaps something is coming in there eating them. My advice go to the boat ramp and walk down the trail until you see the green barge sign on the bank. I caught this fish in that thread there.

    Michael, those mussels are one of the blue cat's favorite foods! I have some spots that are full of mussels and Most of the time you will find some hungry fish in there! Might want to give it another try in the area.....

    I might try it, I see plenty of people fishing there.. have yet to see a fish.. but i guess something has to eat the clams... I normally park there and walk through the woods to the river.. i have a boat now, so don't do that so much anymore..

    your bait will always go downstream, how far it stays from the bank depends on weight.
