Hi, I am having a little trouble locating the cats on some of my local lakes. I don't have a fish-finder so I am basically blind so far as the bottom structure & cover go. I was thinking it might be a good idea to drift fish so that I can find where the cats (mostly channels in my area) are hanging out. I don't have a regular boat but I do have a canoe that I am building some outriggers for (in case a catch a biggun'). I am going to make rod holders by drilling some holes in a 2 x 6 board that I'll c-clamp across the gunwales. I hope to get a small trolling motor when my tax check comes in. Here's my questions: How do you go about drift fishing? How do you rig up your lines? How much line do you let out? What kind of weights do you use (bottom bouncers, walking sinkers, etc.)? J-hooks or circle hooks? Also: anything that I may have forgotten to ask? Thank you very much in advance for any help that you can give me!
