  3. Details: Channel Catfish

    Did A Little Fishing At Dickerson Lake The Other Day Since I Haven't Had As Much Time To Fish This Year As I Would Like To. I Managed To Land A Couple Channel ...more Cats This One Was The Biggest At 16inches. Fished Right In The Middle Of The Day When Temperatures Were At The Highest Best Here For Catfishing Then. I Was In The Middle Of The Small Bend Seen Several Big Carps Swimming Together As Well.
