Ive read several post about people woundering if you can catch big cats drifting which is a real good ?????. I very seldom catch any bigger fish than 25lbs when drifting on the bottom(BUT STEVE BROWN DOSE IT) but my theory is that most of the places i drift are not real close to the channels on Truman because I always get hung up. And I feel the big cats hang close to the channels edges or in it. Where as you can put jugs over those spots and catch those bigger fish. I'm trying the slip balloon float rig over those spots while drifting with great success on 9-1-06 I landed my biggest fish of the year at 54lbs I will say you don't catch as many fish but you do catch bigger fish.
