    When you can't fish for a while here's some catfish-related things you can do:

    1. Post on BOC
    2. Research catfishing in your area to know more about where and when the fish bite
    3. Try experimenting with bait-making: create your own stink baits to try when you get back on the water
    4. Experiment with rigs and see if you can invent the perfect catfish rig for your rods
    5. Share your own ideas...

    Guitar, BOC, computer games (Battlefield 2, Call of Duty, anyone else?), look up stuff about current type of fish your going for (sacalait right now) and watch fishing videos...:smile2: haha. And finally, when all else fails or is forcefully ended, homework.:crazy:

    when I can't fish? why wouldn't i be able to fish? If i couldn't fish then it would be because prison bars are in the way :big_smile:

    But seriously, those are some good suggestions. I would add scouting new waters. Look at maps and get info. If water is down, cruise around and look for structure that will be underwater.

    Another great pasttime is hanging out at bait shops. Can learn alot and can make up some great stories.

    same as above. lol
    I also look for new bank spots on the Ohio river in my area. After the leaves drop, its easier to spot access to the river from the highway.
