    I fish in a fairly still resivoir with little current aprox 20-30 ft max depth
    and i also fish in a fast moving cannal 5-8ft max depth
    ive pulled 15-20lb cats with cut bait ive seen them pull 30-60lb cats on goldfish
    i just dont know how to hook live bait i always seem to loose or kill my bait when i try

    Lucas, welcome to the BOC. I always hook mine just behind the dorsal fin. If you do a search I am sure you will find a bunch of information on this topic. Good luck!
