    Find another lake.:lol: Seriously the lake more than likely is overpopulated with too many channels. If you were only fishing with prepared bait I'd say that's your problem but if your still catching small channels with nice size perch and shad over population might be the problem. I've fished small 50 acre private lake last year. We caught 200 plus catfish in two days....everyone was 1 to 2 pounds apiece. There's just wasn't enough harvesting of smaller fish and the lake just overpopulated and stunted growth.
