    Anyone here fish Reelfoot for cats? It used to be dynamite, but the past few years it has reallt gone down. I usually fish logs in 6-8 ft, but that pattern doesn't seem to work anymore. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Thanks River Scum. I go there once a year (I am 4th generation - my family started fishing there in the 1930's. I have heard that siltation is a major problem there. I don't know about overharvest, because I heard there is no more commercial netting allowed. Whatever the reason is, I will probably go elsewhere next year.
