Im having an awful time catchin cats this summer on the lakes i regularly fish on. It almost seems that they are just tapping at the bate and not really latching onto it and hookin themselves. All the cats i've caught in the last two months i've had to literally set the hook myself and hold the poles because they would just tap at them. Any specific reason for them being like this? Could it be that they are farm raised and stocked by the conservation and just use to being fed leading them not to bite like a catfish that is wild and not farm raised?
