    i'm stationed at eustis and i fish regulary, but i'm not catching the cats. i am fishing from the bank and my baits are worms, fishbites , and bloodworms. i can't fish with seafood since i'm allergic to it. does anyone have any advice. i fish different times mostly in the afternoon and nights when it's cool. i have also started fishing off colonial parkway near jamestown off the james river and no cats. i have caught croaker!my reel is a abu garcia 6500 c3 with a 10ft pole , so i have the distance to cast out!

    Sounds like you need to try Live Gills, cut Gills, Live Shad and cut Shad and cut Eel. if you cant get any Cats on those baits, box up your Abu reel and 10ft Rod and ship it to me :big_smile: Naw you should be fine with the baits I just recommended, Cats cant say no to them. Maybe when I get off leave I can take the trip up to Eustis and we can do some fishin
