    White Oaks is still there I'm pretty sure. I was fishing Shafer two weeks ago. Had one crazy run on a live blue gill, but couldn't hook up. There were plenty of carp to keep me busy though. There are monsters in Freeman, good luck!

    I went about three weeks ago but the wind and rain was pretty bad. Fished for three days caught about 5 cats, few carp and some turtles. It was a slow bite and the cold rain didnt help matters none.

    Man I haven't been up to Shafer in years...I remember those carp though, as a kid I used to think if ya fell in they would eat people. If I saw 'em today I might still think that.

    Did you use to bank fish around the piers at white oaks or did you use a boat?? My parents have a membership there and always seen some catching fish but haven't seen anyone doing any catfishin'
