      If I can I will catch them with a pole, if not I will use a net. They have been very hard to get the last couple of weeks.

      I just realized tonight that I caught the same bass two times. Caught her today and on march 30th. You can check the pictures on here. Same tail damage and the ...more rear upper fin has a cut between the 4th and 5th spine.
    3. Doyle Shaw
      I've never fished for catfish so I can't help you. The shiners I catch with a pole or net. I use bread balls for bait.
