Me and the wifey took off thursday to do some catfishing. Had a little luck in the morning, but didn't set the world on fire. Put a few in the cooler with the chicken livers. After lunch we decided to throw some spinners for white perch. After a couple of perch, my little rod doubled over and when the fish surfaced i could see it was a nice channel cat. Now i've caught a couple of cats here and there on these spinning lures (similar to mepps), but thursday we did better with the spining lures than with bait. Caught a couple of nice 18 inchers and some a little smaller. They sure put up a good fight on 8lb test line. Anybody else have a similar experience? Maybe i haven't had good luck with the channels lately because they're in the shallows chasing smaller fish!!
