Hi HaroldThanks BKS72. I might still have to hire you for a night to go out there and learn a thing or two. Gonna try a couple of more times and see what happens. I have some frozen skipjack that I am useing also but I have always had better luck on live bate for the bigger catfish. I really like to use live shad in the 8-12 inch range but I dont know where to get them on the river so I am useing mostly golden shiners and bream from the pond in my front yard. It does save me a lot of time looking for bait and I also seem to have a never ending supply right now. Thanks for the help and I will let you know if my schedule opens up for a night fishing trip.
if your wanting shad for the river higgensville city lake is pretty close to ya and has alot of big shad in it ya could net from the bank or boat
around the pump house and dock is ussually good or the east point over next to the club house of the golf course .
I fished the oddesa city lake alot for bass years ago I cant remeber if I ever seen any flip in that lake or not but ya might try it also
