    I was wondering if you all could tell me how i should fish kiowa state lake at greensburg ks. it is a small lake only 50 or 60 acres and the max depth is seven feet i think. there are two fish feeders and i have seen people fishing around those. im new to catfishing so i would appreciate your help. thanks

    also, how do i edit my profile?

    Welcome to the BOC. I live to far north east to to have fished that lake.Best i can tell you is to try different baits and spots in the lake.

    I have never been fishing that far east. Get to cedar bluff once in while but mostly fish these little mudholes in sw kansas.

    I would try to find out when the feeders go off usual in the moring, midday and sometime in the evening is how kdwp sets them. But try differents baits one your poles and keep track of which one produced the best hits on that bait.

    Most of the people I see fishing around the feeders in the state lake are fishing under a float. I don't fish there for cats, just gills for bait.Most of the cats in it here are in the 2 to 3lb range.

    Hey jrw put a big blob of stinkbait on a looper rig and throw it down that big well.Then watch out!!!!!! I dont Know anything about that lake. If it is silted in I would fish shallow edges around deeper water. And try to find cover/brush or rocks to fish around.
