Need help with catching catfish out of elaine t. Valiente , i went there and deep fished the front right lake with chicken liver and would get constant bites some bites bigger than others and would check my bait and it would be gone , what could this be i have caught bluegills catfishing before but what ever was messing with my bait i could not get the hook in.
My best advise would be to look for a different lake if you want to target catfish. I've fished there numerous times & have never seen one caught there. I would imagine your 'bites' you were actually crawfish or turtles picking at your liver. Lots of carp in there if you would like to catch them, though...

Check out some of the catfishing articles and posts on here. There are some catfish masters on this site. But I agree with ColoradoDad. You would be better off fishing the TGP for catfish. I've never seen or heard of catfish come out of ETV BUT that doesn't mean there aren't any in there.
