    i was up at buggs island friday night. we caught 6 or 7 cats and 2 crappie worth keeping. i caught a blue about 15 lbs. they other guy with had one on his line for a few minutes that he couldnt get off the bottom and ended up breaking his line. wasnt the best night fishing but wasnt terrible either. there was plenty of shad so i dont know why we didnt catch more.

    we went friday night and stayed till saturday morning so we were using a crappie light to bring em up to the boat. we were in the little creek area. most of the ones we caught were on whole shad. we did catch a couple using liver though.

    i really dont know what the law is on fishing with white bass. i was back up there last week and we caught some stripers in the net about 3 inches long.

    mudslinger, are there any good spots to fish at around gretna? we were thinking about going to long island last week. do you know how the fishing is there?
