I need some help!! As some of you know, I am in Iraq, But I will be coming home for 2 weeks sometime this summer. I am requesting information on catfishing at Buckeye lake, Deercreek Lake, Panit Creek lake, and Rocky Fork. I have never been much of a Lake fisherman, but These are the closest places to take the boat and I don't want to spend all day driving when I should be relaxing with my family.

So please tell me your secrets or at least put me in the ball park! Thanks in advance for all your help!

deer creek has numbers of channels,not a lot of bigger ones,i have caught them up to 12 lbs out of there,but not consistently.

rocky fork has good numbers,and also bigger channels more consistently.big flatheads in there too,but haven't got ahold of any there,maybe one day.

paint creek has good channels and flats,but i don't fish it much.

haven't fished buckeye,don't know anything about it.

Buckeye Lake is a shallow lake. It has a ton of small channels and ther are some bug flatheads in there,so they say.I have got channels up to 10 pounds there. Go to the east end of the lake to find your bigger fish. Atleast that is the way it works for me.

Hi Shane ... I just moved back to Ohio after being away for almost 30 years, so it is hard for me to recommend any place in particular. I do know that it will be more helpful if we knew when, this summer, you will be here. Some places are better during different times of the year and depending on water conditions. I know that both Buckeye and Dillon can produce nice channel and falthead cats, but where they are going to be in the lakes will be determined by the varibales I mentioned above.

I would suggest that you keep bumping this Post up every so often until you know exactly when you be home. We have a good bunch of guys and gals on here, that I am sure would be willing to help one of our Fighting men out, but it would be a good thing to ask to be PM'd with specific info .... :wink: You know how private some of us catfishermen are. Where (town) will you being staying while on leave?

Thank you for for defending the rights of all free men and women. Garry-

Garry/Steve,

Thanks for looking out for me. I will be updating this thread throughout the year to try and get as much info as possible. I have not had a chance to look up the other website, but I will. I need all the tips I can get. Thanks again and I am looking forward to seeing you on the water.
