    Good Afternoon everyone, I need some help. I have a buddy that I would like to take this Friday night for some catfishing, the only problem is I'm looking for a place around the Jacksonville area. I don't want to have to drive too far, have a big day planned Saturday. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Well I gave it as try out on new river and got smoked.:sad2: I used everything i had from liver to whole perch to include cut perch. They just weren't biting. The water was a little to salty does that play a factor?
