    well we fished all day with hotdogs and got nothin..then outta boredom i tossed a peice of pizza in the water...i thought the bluegills would crush it...but as it was driftin away a 10lb channel snatched it. so me and my cousin started fishing with unweighted pizza and were catching channels on top of the water from 5-10lbs all day long....lol...the weird thing is...nobody feeds them so idk why they came up top like that

    It is clearly a case of Italian catfish. If I did that around here someone would catch, and eat it before it hit water. Sounds like you had fun. Good fishin', Jack.

    They must have thought the pizza was big triangle bugs. Channles feed on the surface more than people realize. Try throwing stale bread sometime.

    A guy was telling me that when he was a kid..must have been ott and 2 or 3...he was an aged man..hehehehe...but anyway he told me that they used to tie hooks all around a 1/4 rope and string it across the river right on top of the water...Channel feeding on top hits the hooks and his instinct is to lunge forward and sets the hook himself..thought that was rather strange...no bait at all..

    Ofcourse lots of things were legal back in ott and 2....
