Well I tried out noodling this weekend with no success. I was able to learn what to look for! I fished one windy evening with rod and reel with no luck. The next night my girlfriend and I set some trotlines. Was a lot of fun and her first time really fishing. We did a lot of rowing in my Jon boat. It sure was windy! We managed to get 3 nice 3 1/2 - 5 pound channel cats! Nothing crazy. I found some good spots to try and fish for cats. I may hit them up after work tomorrow or Thursday!
