Is the cold weather just not a good time to collect fish? I set my minnow trap 3 times in a spot in the river where this Sept. there were so many they literally swam into my dipnet. I got nothing. I also tried another spot with my net where I caught dozens of sunfish and nothing. Don't they tend to move to deeper water in the cold? Both these spots are some of the deeper parts in that section of the river.
Also about seining, I got a 4x12' net but haven't been able to try it yet. What are the best spots to seine and what are some good tips for doing it properly. As of now I have no seine partner to help me
