    Hey guys,

    Going to hit Lake Poway for catfish Fri Morning. What rig would work best on their little pier? I swear every time I go I keep skunking at that lake. One reason I stopped going for a couple years. At Santee I normally just do a Carolina with hotdog/stink bait on the end.

    Would fishing on the pier facing the dock or throwing the rig towards the deep end?

    FRESH bait, go catch some the night before. Small hook, no bigger than size 4. As light a weight as possible, none if you can. Open bail and watch your line: don't let them feel you

    I saw 2 cruising under the dock a couple weeks ago on the shallow side. If I had fresh dead mack or a nightcrawler suspended off the bottom they would of been in my frying pan that night. Same goes for that hold over trout I saw. The bass there gave me the stink eye as usual.
