I recently walked down to the river from my house. I thought I found the perfect spot to cast out a piece of medium sucker and bring in the cats. There is a inlet that kind of hooks parallel to the river for about 20 feet. The channel itself is about 1.5 feet deep and gets deeper as it gets past the hooked inlet. The hook causes the current to slow up and stop for at least 30 feet of shorline. I'd say the depth 15 feet from shore is about 3-4 feet. All sand, clay and mud. I cast a slip weight rig set to about 2 feet out with a cut up piece of sucker. I caught 1 carp in 3 hours. Am I doing something wrong or are the fish just not there??

Welcome.

Day or night fishing?

If I were to offer some quick advice without more details..... I would say launch that Cut Sucker as far as you can cast at a 45 deg angle down steam from the spillway. Let the current pull it to the break and see what happens.

Channels seem to like it deeper. I very rarely have ever caught them shallow.

Good luck.
