    I mostly fish at Lake Lookout, but from time to time go and bank fish (I don't have a boat) at Molly Backbone on Norman. In the past Ive always caught a fair bit of Catfish. But this year Ive only seen 1, 9 inch Cat (caught by my Daughter) in about 10-15 fishing trips there. I use Nightcrawlers or Liver for bait. Last year there was a big Gar I saw on several nights, in the area. Would it eat the Cats? The place is slap full of Bream and small Bass though. And I have not seen the Gar this year.
