    I'm not sure what it's like in your state. here in Ohio this is one of the best times of the year for big cats.It's like their last meal before winter, heavy eatin now.Most of my catches now will seem to be the bigger cats, I'm using good size cut bait fishing in reservoirs deeper water. They still hit hard. I'm sure if a river is where you fish and it's low that got to be depressing. The fishing not over until covered with ice for me. Hope you can find deeper water.

    Hi guys:

    Been fishing in the muddy mo up here at white cloud, it is down big time but just in the shallows, I hooked a big cat the other day bout 5pm and it was a great fight BUT he pulled the line down in the rocks just over the bank in the main channel, I could pull him up against the rocks and he would pull back but never up and I walked the shore for ever trying to get him loose BUT nope. had him on a 4/0 gamakatsu with 2 night crawlers, hope he enjoyed them and the hook. I'll try again another day, keep your worms warm and who knows what will happen.

    keep fishin

    I've yet to "waste" any time wetting a line, but I will get in the house when the ice shows up...:lol:

    Don,
    The water temp here in Milford and Geary lakes is down to 47 degrees. I've limited my drifting and still fish more now which as increased my success rate. We don't catch a lot, but enough to make it worth while going out. Personally, I'd probably go even if I knew I wouldn't catch any:roll_eyes:, but that's just me.
