    went to manawa this morning to do some channel cat fishing. I decided to fish near the north east dock around 8am. i was using fresh cut shad heads in about 4 feet of water. around 8:30 it was on, i landed 8 channel cats in two hours and could have kept at it but work called me on my day off and asked me to come in :sad2: all in all this had to be the best day for channels at mannawa in quite awhile.
