I have been doing well in a river with limblines. Cut bait or chicken breast chunks seem to work equally well. Set them with the bait 1-3 feet deep. I have been putting the lines out starting about 2 hours before dark and sometimes I don't get them all out until after dark, depends on how many I put out. I put out 10-20 lines. Then run them a few times. They have been biting for 3-6 hours. I haven't stayed longer, as that would be all night, lol. And I have plenty of fish by then anyway. Wondering if this upcoming full moon will affect the fishing.
I also might put out some noodles when I first get there, motoring up river and put them out, then start setting limb lines. By the time I get all the lines set, the noodles will have made it quite a ways toward the end.
Regarding the moon, I have read that flatheads bite the worst on full moons. I catch maybe one small flathead per trip, the rest are blues. I don't know why I haven't caught any channel cats.
