    Heading to Patoka Lake in a couple of weeks and never have fished there.

    Any advice on locating the catfish in there would be appreciated. I will be staying at the state campgrounds at
    3084 North Dillard Road
    Birdseye, IN 47513
    (812) 685-2464

    I know it is a huge lake and looking forward to any help

    Thanks

    No one do any catfishing at Patoka?

    I heard that catfishing pressure is really non-existant there

    I am going down there for a get together with a bunch of multispecies fishing people so its not my normal place I would go.

    Actually the white is a little iffy for my Fiberglass boat but I definately plan on hitting the Ohio more this year. I am not to far from Tanners Creek.

    Thanks for what you could provide
