WelL I quickly discovered that the catfish in my pool are totally in tune with their environment. I have been feeding my catfish floating fish food. It was cool to watch the water boil and see them grow. I set that up so when my family, or guests and their kids wanted to fish they could have some fun and have a quick bite with out alot of hassle. Well guess what. Those jokers figure you out it seems. Catch a fish and the whole place gets lock jaw. It is like we were snitched off. I swear I think I heard them laughing at us while we were trying to show what fine catfishermen we are. The gig is up quick. I found that you do not have to be smarter than a 5th grader but you do have to outsmart the fish. I quit the floating fish deal and I now have a place to utilize every piece of bait I dont use. I began chunking my unused shad in there. The feeding frenzy is still there and the big bass have joined in so now we can watch them too. Those bass are sitting there right now waiting on something to enter their zone. Now if I want to cat my catfish I do not have to change a thing, Get some shad or worms and its on. If yu have experienced this in your pool this might work for you too. By the way if your shad is still cold the bass will spit it out. Interesting to watch, as lang as its normal temp the catfish have to hussle to beat the bass.
