    Overcast with periods of very light rain. Fished from 1 PM to 8 PM in northern part of the lake. Water Temp was 71. Felt like it was a rather slow day. The honey holes didn't produce. In one 45 minute period we got about 8 bites and landed 4 channel cats in the 2-4 pound range. But that was it all day. Fished with cut shad and live blue gills. 3 channels caught on cut shad and 1 on live bluegill.

    Hope to try again Sunday (wife permitting).......

    From what I've seen over the years fishing for flats during a low pressure front is about worthless. You might catch afew blues,but the flats are a different story. Right when the bar pressure starts going back up they should bite again.

    So if I don't have a barometer, what you are saying is they don't bite well with an approaching cold front and they should start biting again as soon as the cold front passes through ???

    Does this apply to channel cats as well?
