    Well last night me and my buddy sat out for a night of fishing on our favorite spot at my place, we decided we were gonna stick it to em all pull out all the stops for this adventure, we started by chumming the area, and then batited up all TEN of our rods, spread out at various distances,angles,and depths, and each with a different bait then we would focus our use on the bait that got the most attention. We were armed with livers,crawlers, shrimp, salmon, homemade dough, store bought dough, some punch bait, chubs and gills. Within 20 minutes we began getting some pecks and it never stopped. Well long story short whatever we were doing was making the snapping turtles happy cause we landed 5 big ones, and the were disposed of, but the only cat caught was one bullhead that went about 7 inches, just more confusion and dissapointment put on my plate after last night. now im left wondering WHY and HOW??

    I had the same luck two nights ago, I think they are finishing up with the spawn. At least I hope that's the problem!

    I say Spawn,weather are the two biggest factors right now. Try another location...Seems like the whole Midwest is slow

    Yep, that's been my experience with any kind of chumming for catfish.

    I have no idea whats goin on, earlier this year like late may early june we were gettin some nice blues n channels from the spot but nothin since just a stragglin bullhead occasionally, I think they may still be doin a lil spawnin, due to them all starting at different times from eachother, Im just disgusted about it, and its not just my lake, the 2 other spots iv got arent hot yet either. All bad things must come to an end, i set my bait out about 2 hrs ago to thaw out and im thinkin about puttin in a lil more bank time, its just hard to get motivated!!

    you might try it again without chumming you already know that it draws the attention of turtles and with that many around your lines it prob scared away most of the fish that were there and any from comming in too close. good luck to ya
