Philpott is my home lake and I do most of my lake fishing there but have never really caught catfish with any size to them. I know that it is not known primarily for its catfishing but I do know that there are big cats in the lake. If any one has any techniques or any help at all on how to possibly find some bigger fish the information would be greatly appreciated. I've never really been consistent on catching eating size cats there either. It's usually hit and miss.
