I am fishing from a boat in the SouthEast Texas area (Jasper). I have tried fishing from a dock for catfish but did not have any luck. I would t4ry fishing the dam but you can not get close to it by boat due to cable with booiis. i have never really catfished on a river before but then again this is not a normal river. it only flows when the dam is generating. i do bass fish on this river all the time when the dam is not generating and have great luck. i am wanting to targe mainly bigger blues and i know that they are in this river becuase i have seen them caught on trotlines. now that it is winter time do i need to target deeper holes in the river. they are working on the dam so the river is lower than it has ever been. i am thinking of using a small boat that i can carry to the water because the rams arent usable right now. this is a mid size river and is no wider than 75 yards. any suggestions would be great.
