I recently found a pretty large 60+ acre Gravel corry lake that is not fished very much at all. It is private and only very few are aloud to fish it and the others who sneak in, for the most part don't know what they are doing, especially for cats. It is a confusing(new) kind of water for me to fish...it is 70+ feet deep, for about a third of it...it drops off fast... ten feet off shore alot of the places...the water is crystal clear, spring fed. It does have a back corner (two acres) that only ranges to about 20 feet...There isn't too much structure as in trees(a few) in this lake, it's a old gravel corry..ANYWAY...I would be so very graitful for any advise on fishing some of these old ass pig channel cats out of there....What should i use for bait? I caught a 12 pounder on a six inch bluegill, on a trot line...but I need experienced advice on these fish...I am excited and ready to stick em'....I only had worms last night and caught a largemouth at 2am, ended up cutting him and using it on one of my hooks below a battery operated light up bobber set to about 7 feet with a crappie rig below( cut fish on the bottom hook) and lost something large....Anyways if anyone can give me any helpful advise i'd appreciate it.... I would love to share the spot as well if anyone is interested to hang out and share some knowledge and some beer or soda....i live in ohio in the akron/canton area....CATFISH1 is GREAT...so glad i found you guys. By the way, i am not new to fishing...only to serious cat fishing...have fished bass, perch, walleye, panfish, my whole life...THANKS EVERYONE!!!!
