Throwing my trotline out tomorrow on Conroe in the back of the house, up against the bulkhead in 8 ft of water using no. 6 treble baited with bream and chicken livers. Have done decently there at this time of year. Usually get 6 to 8 fish each time it's baited. Channel cats mainly from 3 to 5 lbs average.
