Just wondering what the launch situation looks like, I know Labelle in spring can be pretty high by launch, just curious how high it is with all the rain we have been getting. Thanks, not sure I am going to fish again this year but if I do will post detailed report on Labelle.

Channel cats will eat algae, crawfish, and any small fish they can get in mouth. The only problem is that carp grow fairly quickly so there is a short time frame where channels can eat the small carp. Flatheads on the other hand will eat carp up to a couple pounds or 3 or 4 years of age. The channels will probably help keep the yellow bass population in check, I am sure the walleye do a pretty good job at eating yellow bass also. In about a month I plan on spending a few trips on Labelle, will let you know what I find.

Some old monster flatheads still swimming in there, there is a particular log I always see one sitting under, definitely some 30 plus pound flatheads swimming in there still. Not many lakes with channel cats in Waukesha county, nice to be able to target them on a lake as opposed to river.
I always told myself that they were carp on the screen. They seem to be getting more prolific every year, unfortunately.
I've caught quite a few cats and a couple carp on jigs and crawler chunks trying to catch walleyes on LLB . Caught cats on Daredevils, Flickr shads, and Rapalas too.
Heard they stocked flathead, but I've only caught channels. Actually pretty tasty deep fried with Cajun Shore Lunch!
