Bro. Karl and myself went to the deep water in my boat this morning. Bait of choice was Karl's secret solution on catfish chunks and strips, plus some white perch marinated in some shad oil, some frozen (twice) shad and some large gizzard shad frozen (just once). This AM the cats were in the 35 to 40 foot range in 109 feet of water. Water temp. was 88.6 degrees and wind was out of the NE 8 to 15 MPH. All baits caught at least one fish, but again, Karl's reddish brown meat from the cat marinate in the ........ was what they wanted. The cats were in a small pocket close to the fenced off area at the dam and the wind made it hard for us to stay on them. Ended up with 15 in the three to 9 pound range. Total time on the water was four hours.
