I was wondering if any of you can give me some tips to find where channel cats can be found. I do not have a boat (that runs) at the moment so the majority of the time I bank fish. I have found online nautical charts of the rivers I typically fish so I can find out what the general depth is where I intend on fishing. The only thing I need to do now is get some info on the type of structure/depth that you would typically find the channels at. Any advice would help. Aside from the spawning areas I know of finding them big ones after the spawn has proven to be a bit difficult. I do hope to get some $$$ to get a '72 Evenrude 9.9 running again so I can use a 12' Valco my In-laws have. Need to get a new tank & the carburator rebuilt I think, I rebuilt the whole bottom end last spring & had it running for about 5 hours then it just crapped out ( runs at 1/4 the power now). So like I indicated the bank is where I'll be barring an influx of $$. Looking foreward to any advice.
