These are definitely bigger than the channels that I catch in the Flat River but knowing the size of the blues in Kerr Lake these guys are in the dink class. Still and all even these little guys are fun. They can bury the rod in the holder and make it difficult to get it up and out.
I have not caught any live fresh bait recently so I have been using chicken and frozen cut menhaden. Yesterday not even a sniff on the chicken.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and God bless.
