The only negative is you will attract fishermen as well as fish.
If you feed manually , do so at the same time each day ( dusk seems to work well)
catching a catfish out of a surface feeding school freaks out the
school and can shut down a feeding session.
The key is to hook one , and let it swim out of the school , then land it
on the backside of dock. Hard to coach kids to do this.
It is cheap entertainment to see a mass of feeding channel cat. My grandkids
love to feed the fish.
