Thanks for having me in the forum! This is the first post here for me, although I am a weekly reader of the CT Report.
The info I am looking for is: Is the fishing this winter extra poor, or is it I am making bad choices?
The scenario: I fish through the winter, every winter, for cats , crappie, perch and carp. I fish every Saturday, sunup to sundown, and vary spots: Chickahominy, Chowan, North River, Lone Star Lakes, Back Bay ,etc.(live in Va.Beach).
The complaint: I have two common carp from November, a few bass, a handful of bottom fish, and that's it.... I am a B&B man (bank fishing and bait fisherman) using eels, nightcrawlers, minnows, and cut shad..... BUT NO CATS ALL WINTER! My grandsons and I ALWAYS catch winter cats!
The Question: Anybody else having this problem? Is this cold winter extra slow?
