    I was thinking about throwin a trot line out, but I have never fished with one. Any suggestions? I know nothing about it.

    Thanks!

    Well if it's a lake like a farm pond then run it from one side to the other and put a weight in the middle, make it tight but not so tight the weight can't take it down.

    Bait, yellow bellies eat anything, and the little buggers had a preference of shad this weekend, although chicken livers, or even worms would work

    what if i dont want to stretch the whole length from shore to shore? can i just tie one end to a tree and another to a big heavy object i can pull in and drop it in the middle of the lake?

    limblines.

    If you had a boat, I'd say jug it but sounds like it may be a lake thats gonna get some traffic or your jugs seen by people that wont respect or recognize what it is.

    i could jug fish it but wouldnt want to let em sit more than overnight.

  16. First you have to actually touch a catfish before you try and run with the big dogs what happens when you pull up a 50 pounder:D
