    I have a 2 acre farm pond and I know there are several species of catfish in it molted cats and channels for sure. I dont know diddle about cats and would love to learn how to catch them so I could teach my grandkids too.Most of the lake is about 5 foot deep with an area of 1/2 acre 15 foot deep. There is a creek on the upper end 2 foot wide and 2 foot deep comming in to it. I am in north ga. Thanks for any info..

    Sounds like a nice little fishing hole ya got there! Personally i would get me some Sonnys blood forumla dip bait or some Wicked Sticky dip bait from cattracker, maybe some garlic hotdogs and nightcrawlers so you have a nice variety of bait. I'd probably go and setup near that feeder stream and start fishing there and see what happens. I'd use the slip sinker rig for the dipbait, get ya a slip sinker a snap swivel and some dip bait worms and you are ready to go!

    the bait I like the most is blood bait or the dip.I prefer no lead.some times cats will drop the bait if they feel any resistance.leave your bell open and watch your line.fish early mornings,late evenings and at night.

    if there is some current then use a slide lead with a small swivel like stated above.if its legal chum with some laying mash for two days straight.keep note when you chum.for a example if you chum at 4.00 that evening
    (do at the same time both days)then on the third day fish at four.
    you will catch some cats.

    Welcome to the BOC. Chicken liver,secret 7 would work great in there. worms. You can fish with a bobber or fish on the bottom. Fishing farm ponds are alot of fun. Enjoy teaching the youngins. Andrew

    I would think a good spot to start would where it drops off from 5-15ft
