In the past, I've mainly fished for bass and crappie, but have for several years fished for channel cat during May and June in shallow water using DK or Stubbys. We've been very successful with that tactic. But outside of May and June spawn fishing, I haven't done too much. I catch channels on brush piles frequently on minnows. If I used traditional catfish bait on brushpiles, will I catch cats consistently? I've been thinking about trying some new areas for cats. Will they hold to underwater structure like other fish? Creek channels, humps, etc. Or am I better off chumming a moderately shallow area and going at them the way I always have? I can throw a cast net for shad, but other than my bass baitcasters, I'm not well equipped for big blues. I have a boat, and Ray Roberts is my go to lake. Thanks for any tips you might have!

Try something new ...you can always retreat welcome to the TFF!! I would put some 40-50lb braid on a couple of those bass rods and do a little drift fishing with some shad in the open water...


If it ain't broke don't fix it...but go ahead and work on it anyway.....
