I'm ready for a weekend at the lake but the wind will not cooperate with me to do any Crappie fishing, so I was wondering do you think I would have any luck with catfish on yo yo's or even a trotline?

what water depth should I try?

My experience is that it's pretty cold for yo-yo's, but maybe others know differently.

Trotlines are always "in season" \:\)

I use to fish the backwater in the river bottoms years ago in the winter time and always had good luck, I have never tried Reelfoot lake in the winter time for catfish, but it seems like the should be bitting something, I'm like you I never see people yo yo in the winter time not sure why though?

Yo-yos no good when they freeze up and springs don't work, basically just a limb line then

This time of year you will probably be best to look for moving water as colder temps have dropped DO (dams are usually good). Personally I like jugging or in our case noodling, which is just tying a catfish rig to a 1/4 of a pool noddle.

I have noodles but they are hard to keep up with in the wind, very little moving water at Reelfoot lake.
