I caught a 12 1/2 lb channel and a 27 1/2 lb Flathead out of cotile last week. I have lived here all my life and i wont fish any other lake even though Cotile is a pain in the tail. I just wish people would STAY OFF MY TROT LINES.....

"Went out last weekend and caught a few mud-cat,then caught a couple of nice channels(12 & 2 lbs.) this lake is an excellent catfishing lake and the pressure is low,being that most anglers seem to go after bass. On this lake when they are turned on you can catch them about everywhere,I caught mine in 6 ft. of water using shrimp,crawlers and chicken liver.On that particular evening they were hitting the liver,although I prefer Turkey liver because it is stronger and bloodier.Good luck, the ""FISHIN' MAGICIAN"""

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.
