    Not sure, I know they use their skin for sight over their eyes. My guess is branches and such on floor of lake/river.

    I've never fished the GMR but I have hooked plenty here on the muskingum and when I pull them in the hook point is coming out one of their eyes. I hate when it happens but I send them back cause I know they can find food with other senses.

    When I catch a little Channel on a big hook it always seems to come out the eye. But, one of my biggest Channels only had one eye, didn't seem to bother her any.
