    Hey everyone I need some advice. I was wondering if there is anyone that lives in or by Elkhart, IN that can tell me a hot spot for cats ive been trying the St. Joe but I have had no luck at all no matter what I have used they just arent bitting, so If there is a hot spot to hit up around Elkhart or a close county over I would love to hear about it.
    Thanx for any help,
    -Tip---

    Hey JR, Try not to bumb out. It's been really bad
    for me and many people that I know. There's no
    doubt that we need rain really bad right now. Also
    it's just damn hot. Hopefully someone with more
    experiance than myself will reply with some advice. Eric......?

    Thanks for the hand off Larry! Lol But I don't know of any close spots up that way. The Kankakee is to your west, it has some good holes. I have never fished the St Joe, only seen it when going to Notre Dame games. I'm sure the lack of rain is the main problem, there are always catfish around somewhere. Good luck!

    sorry i havent fished your water bro. but i would tell you to fish hard and fast covering water. it seams to be the only way we can catch numbers when the water is low. dont over look the very small spots like a single log a big rock or smal eddy either! they spread out when its low so you have to too.


    good luck & welcome to the brotherhood

    Tip -- I think nightstalker fishes or has fished the St. Joe up that way before. Maybe send him a pm is he doesn't chime in here.

    look around for good cover and deep holes for cats. or you might try fishing by sandbars in the evening . late night trips
