Sorry I didn't see your post until now. Prairie creek channel cats usually run between 2 to 4 lbs. They are scattered from one end to the other. The numbers are fair and, if your good at reservoir catfish fishing, you might do well.
I would not recommend driving much of a distance for prairie creek cat fishing. Brookville reservoir would be a much better place. The place is loaded with 2 to 10 lb cats. Often while trolling for walleye, I will catch several nice cats. At times I have to move to another spot just because the cat fish will hit about every type of bait or lures I use.
well i am wondering if ya did hook a big one it has to be tough to get him through the hole. and on top of that what kind of equipment does one use? caught some by accident myself through the ice and it was no picnic with my panfish equipment. i have enough trouble pulling bass through. i just have never seen anyone target them through the ice and am curious...
