    Hi all, I have been reading up on all the great knowledge here. I used to fish when I was young and remember having a blast. Now that I have a son, I am trying to take him fishing too. I live near canyon lake, saguaro and the lower salt. Is there somewhere in this area that anyone can recommend for channels? I have been to canyon lake in boulder on a recommendation, but it seems to produce very few cats? Actually, we've been skunked more times than not. We have tied everything from cut bait, liver, worms, and stink bait. I appreciate all the info already. Thanks

    James Welcome to the BOC,from So. Illinois. I can't help you on locations in your area but I will suggest a bait an applicator that will help you catch a lot of eater size fish. Team Catfish, one of the BOC Sponsors, has a bait called Secret 7, and a bait holder called the mini furry thing. Order these and start catching fish.

    A friend of mine fishes Canyon almost exclusively. His last time out they caught LMB, SMB, crappie, channel and flathead cats. I've only fished Canyon twice, once with him and once with my boat. I'll be fishing there 9-18/19-09. When I do I'll post how we did.
    My partner and I are fishing the Lake Pleasant striper tournement 8-22-09. I'll post how we do on that one. Happy fishing.

    Where do you guys fish for flats? Sounds like great fun, but I'd be willing to bet they'd destroy a rig like mine. lol
