    a couple of buddies and me have been fishing ahquabi and hooper nightly. we haven't come home empty handed as a group, but some nights are faster than others. I hear that hooper is better than ahquabi, but one night I caught four 8 pound plus channels out of ahquabi and just haven't been able to hit the spot at hooper. Dnr says hooper is better catfishing, so if anyone knows anything about hooper that I should, help a brother out. thanks.

    I have fished hooper and ahquabi many times with the "master" of ahquabi, but we have always used shrimp, and were fishing virtually were you recommended. We might be lucky to pull one or two out a night, but nothing real exciting for a group of 4 or more!!!
