    Well my son and I thought we'd go and hit the dam since my boat is down, they had a bunch of generators on and the water was very high, we used cut skips small pieces in the calmer water near the wall. We only got one dinky channel about 15 inches I hooked him and let my boy reel it in. I have never seen a catfish come outta there till then, I was tickled now I know their there! Wish I had a pick of it but we got it home and deep fried it was the best tasting fish I have had in a long time, mmmmmm

    I love fishing them dams near the wall from the bank. Mike, that's the best eating size catfish, anyway. One of these days I'll drive down to Carthage, one of my old stomping grounds and fish Cordell Dam. I catch them eater size channels right up against the dam wall up to 5-6 lbs all the time at Melton Hill. There's a few rainbow trout in there but I haven't caught any yet and every now and then I'll get a striper.
