    Aaron Welcome to the BOC. If I were fishing Kinkaid for channel I would fish the north west section of the lake. Fish the creek channel and the flats associated with that channel creek. For numbers of channel I would suggest fresh cut bait, or Sonnys Dip Bait. This should give you a good starting spot.

    Aaron I'll give you some rep poiints to get you started. You have found the best catfishing site/community in the world. When you get time check out the BOC library for lots of info. Also check out the BOC Illinois Gatherings.This is were we all get together and meet each other, eat, and learn the tricks of the fishing trade. Rend Lake Gathering takes place in June. You are welcome.
