    I am going to be fishing some clearer water than I am use to for catfish in a few weeks...am going to Lake Greeson, AR for crappie and cat...does anyone use change their methods, specifically bait or tackle for targeting cats in clearer lakes (by rod and reel or line-running)?

    no wen i fish iowa the water is really dirty and wen i come here to missouri the water is alot clearer and i dont change my method at all i still use a 8/0 hook and put about 1/2oz of wait in the lakes inad about a foot from the hook put a split shot for a slip sinker rig with cut shad or creek chubs just make shure u keep the bait fresh lol
