Seems like there is not much going on in the way of catfishing. Thought I would share a story from yesterday. Went to a small creek that is in a corn field not too far away from a lake. Maybe 100 ayards away. There is a bend in the creek and the water is a little deeper there. Meaning, you cant see the bottom. Anywhere else on this creek and its too shallow for throwing a net. Anyhow, my second cast I could tell there was some fish in the net. Thought maybe I had a turtle or something. Ended up pulling out a 8 pound channel cat. Also, caught about 3 one pound crappie. And yes, I did throw them all back. Never got a shad. Ended up with only 2shiners for my efforts. Did have some nice gills and sunfish. Again, I threw them back as well. I worry they may all die though. This creek gets really dry and the forecast only has a slight chance of rain this week. Gonna go back later this week and try for some shad. A couple weeks ago I got two out of there.
