just found on this site how to extract oil from baitfish. When I get enought I will try it. Also I got about a dozen clams and plan to get more before water gets too cold. I am going to try serious winter catfishing for the first time this winter. I will use clams and fresh bait. I will fish where I do in the summer but deeper than usual. One thing I want to know is what weather conditions are good for winter channels?
