    Im going channel catting this weekend on belews. usually around this time of year i stay near the HH. i was wondering if anyone has had any luck other places like piney bluff or 158 ect. I live next to 158 so if they are there i wouldnt mind trying to find them. i have been down there a few time this winter and it seems like i do better over by the dam. i have been using shrimp and small chuncks of garlic soaked hotdogs. that seems to do okay. Any information would be appriciated. Thanks

    Well saturday did not go so well for me. I got to the lake about 6pm. I started on 158. i threw two cat rods out then walked the rock beds for about 1.5 hours trying various bass baits. Mostly i was trying plastic worms. Well i got nothing so i packed up and went to piney bluff. I threw two cat rods out loaded with pieces of shrimp. i thought it was going to be a good night for bass as i could see fish breaking the water all over the place. Well after three hours of watching fish jump everywhere and not catching anything i gave up. the fish seem to be pretty big fish jumping but i could not get any of them interested in what i had to offer. I tried again worms of various colors and a few top water lures. i have no idea what the fish were that were jumping everywhere but if you could figure out what they want you could probably have a heck of a night of fishing. Anyway im going back Sunday from about noon till dark. ill probably hit areas closer the the HH as i have had pretty good luck there in the recent past.
