Okay, every trip I'll catch maybe 2 channels, 1 that will be about 4-5 pounds. I'll filet them and freeze them. I'm perfectly happy doing this, but I just once wish I could have a small fish fry without having to make 8 fishing trips. I usually use cut bluegill on a slip-bobber rig, and my dad uses worms, but he mostly catches bullheads, yellow bass, and bluegills. He'll catch maybe 1 channel every trip. I know there are abundant channels in my fishing hole, I just don't catch a whole lot. What rig and bait could I use on another catfish rig to catch a lot of channels in the 1-5 lb range? I'll still have my heavy duty rig with cut bait since once in a while I run onto a channel in the double-digit poundage range.
