Well im starting to doubt my skills and knowledge as a catfisherman, i live on my own private 9 acre lake, and have been catfishing it for nearly ten years. I have stocked hundreds of fingerlings, released hundreds of mature cats, and the lake has been here since 58, when it was first built it was stocked heavily with channels,blues, and some flats. I cant seem to pattern these fish, i cant figure out where there at, and what there biting on,iv tried every bait imaginable. Iv tried fishing at all hours, day and night, morning and evening, the back part of the lake is about a 1 acre cove, it is only about 1 foot deep, i think the fish may be feeding back there at night cause iv heard some huge splashes back there while fishing at night, should i focus on this shallow area or fish the deeper holes by the spillway, or should i be fishing the channel of the lake, i feel completely ignorant having to ask advice on my own lake!! any info will help!! THANKS!!
