    I am a new member. I was wondering if the cats are biting. How deep are they and were, creeks or river

    Welcome to the BOC. I'v been fishing here around the Carolina Creek area now for several months and its been tuff. I'v hit every log jam in both directions for miles and have not had much to showe for it. Been catching some smaller ones {2 to 3 1/2 lbs.} on ocasion but nothing to brag about.
    Did get to go out yesterday. Stayed out all day and drifted aimlessly down the river. No trolling motor. Fished alot of dead water but did manage to bring in 7 that averaged about 5 to 6 lbs. All in all a good day.
