I fish in a Lake in my area. I am trying to catch some bigger cats and trying to start using info from eberyone here. What I want to know mainly is how do I rig the hotdogs, perch, shad, and blue gills. Also should the fish mentioned be live or dead, cut or not cut? I usually fish with the carolina rig setup on bottom. I fish at the opening of an ok sized cove area off main channel of lake. They are some trees in the water in the area also.
