Bait is scattered in the river at Badin. Caught 4 catfish in the cast net. One was a 4 lb. blue. Lots of small catfish shallow in the river. Marked a bunch of good fish at 35 feet down from Old Whitney area but they wouldn't bite. Went to Falls Dam to fish. Marked lots of fish at 44 ft. Caught 5 blues. Two @ 5 lbs., 1 @ 6.5 lbs., 1 @ 11.5 lbs., and 1 @ 15.5 lbs. Fish were caught in 48 to 53 ft. of water a few feet off the bottom on cut shad. The fish didn't want live bait today. I missed about 5 or 6 fish that really made hard pulls. I marked one small group of fish that were definitely bigger than most of the other fish marked. I stayed on those fish the whole time at Falls. The fishing was as good as it was back in early June.
