Drifting for cats is very productive at Clear Lake. All you need is a small breeze, fresh bait ( I like mackerel or sardines, butterflied and put on the hook with flesh side out) and a little patience. My wife nailed a beautiful 17lb. Channel cat that took about twenty mins to get in due to the light gear. Epic battle that she will never forget. We let him go because we didn't have the heart to keep such a rare beauty, most are brown and yellow.. all done at night, good times....
