Can someone explain to me if and why dam fishing is really that much better that fishing elsewhere in a lake? I see numberous threads here on it and see people fishing below the dams all the time. I have fished below them as well but just seemed to fight crowds, lose a lot of tackle and not catch a lot of fish. Are the fish bigger? Are they more prone to bite when water is being released? How much is too much water being released? I am still pretty amateurish when it comes to catfishin and don't want to be missing out on some good fishing. But curious if it is all just hype or really a good place to fish. Any ideas or opinions?
