for those of you that fish the canals or even the akes at night i have something for you. as we all know sometiems the catfishing can be slow and the bites might not come for a while. well if you get bored take a (dare i say it) bass rod along rigged with a 1/2 oz spinnerbait. i have found that the most productive ones have large tandem blades, with the main blade being a willow leaf. the best colors are anything that looks like a bream. i figured this out one night being bored so i picked one up and just started casting. the third cast i caught a 5lbs lgmouth. within a half hour i had caught 6 bass, all over 2 lbs. i thought it was a flue so i tried it again 2 weeks later. same results. i have done this about 8 times in a row now and it always produces. give it a shot, you never kow what might happen.
