I always hear 15 to 30 minutes but that makes for some serious moving and hauling when you fish on the bank. The pond I am at is roughly 7 acres with plenty of 30+ cats, some into 40's and 50's. I plan to put in a solid 6-12 hours today since I finshed my big paper for the week. I figure with time and deligence I can re-hook into a fish like the one I lost in the netting incident last week. I will be going around 1 pm and staying untill possibly 1 am, with a lunch in between. In the midday what would be the best aproach, and how often should I move around. My equipment includes: 6 foot cast net, 2 8-foot rods, 2 7-foot rods, tackle box, bait basket, and other stuff. So moving around is not super easy, but I just want to catch fish. There is an incoming creek so I figured I may give it a shot. Any advice on planning, baits or rigs to try. Any advice is appreciated.
