    This is what a carp looks like in winter:

    Shallow ~4'. I managed a few cats too. They seemed to be a bit deeper ~8-10'. I've been trying for a few days since the first of Jan. as part of a bet to get the first cat & carp of the year.

    No, I rarely eat catfish. Years ago I lived down south and had a fair share, but these days I stick with the trout, perch, walleye, ... bluegill

    I like channel cat, its just difficult around here to catch them in a place where they aren't loaded with mercury or some other contaminants, etc.

    Good job, you'll probably have me beat by 4 months. Haven't put the time in personally yet to find winter cats and carp. I am determined to eat a 24"ish flathead this year, just one though...

    These were caught in water that is considered less than *select*, according to the advisory it appears that PCBs are the problem.

    Thanks, I think of it as the fatman's ice fishing.
