What do the channel cat do once the thermocline sets in?... I'm still learning how to catfish,and have had a few good trips with my kids, but the last three trips wer terrible...I'm fishing a good looking horseshoe bend in a creek that's about 17' deep in the creek, and about 12' on top of the bend... I heard some guys that were crappie fishing say the thermocline had set up at about 14'...so what do the catfish do?.. Go shallow?..Suspend?..if they don't go bellow the thermocline,this eliminates the whole deeper end of the lake... I'm kinda lost...I heard Chad Ferguson say he fishes for them year round in 5' of water.. but that water will be really hot and their is no bait fish there... what do y'all say?
The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?
