Arrrrg!! Why did you have to bring up Fishing for God's sake!?!
I was happy in my Winter no fishing time. The withdraws had eased up and I'd convinced myself I could get along without fishing for a few months.
By the way - If you like to go for catfish, shad gut is THE best bait. I don't care if your Uncle Joe has his soooper secret mystery bait, put a bit
of shad gut on your hook, [ with a bit of side meat ] throw it in and Hang On. I fished the Ohio River, below the dam, around Uniontown Ky for decades
and hauled in some of the biggest Blue Cats you'd ever want to fight on a rod and reel. Biggest was 58 lbs and if you don't think that's a big
catfish, try fighting one that size. Took me 45 minutes to get him in. I fish from the bank and know where all the deep holes are in that area, so
even if the water is low during the Summer, I can drop it right on their little heads.
