I have been told by some walley fisherman at work, that I need to throw crankbaits for channel cats, that they catch quite a few when after eyes, primarily around wing damns on Mississippi river, NE Iowa pools 10,11,12.
So my questions are....
I thought cats fed mostly by smell, so is color an issue ? How good are their eyesight, or are they just instinctive/oppurtunity bites from the cats ?
How deep to target, I assume the bottom 2 feet, or do cats susspend more than the average fisherman thinks/realizes ?
General tips to try with crankbaits when I get out there.
THANKS in advance
