Just wanted to get some info on the kittie bite this time of year. Friends keep saying it's not worth my time. Just curious on what others think. Thanks

I've gotten a few that would be "keepers" out of the IL River this fall. Usually they grab a jig and crawler. Good luck

Cats bite year round. I always get a few every year ice fishing. You can fish year round for them by the Dresden Lock from shore, the warm water discharge keeps the river open.

Week ago on IL river hooked a 7# channel and a smaller flathead, both on bobber/minow, the more fun fish on zips and cranks 8)~

Cats do tend to be far less active in the colder months but then again most fish are.

Thanks for the comments and advice. Between family and fluctuating river conditions I haven't even tried this fall. Waiting for ice now. Thanks again to everyone.
