    Just a note: All of the lakes at Busch are stocked with catfish. Don't overlook one just because it is not intensively managed for cats. I've always caught the bigger cats at Busch from such lakes though not as much quantity. The Cat ponds are mostly stocked with eaters which don't stay long enough to grow any.

    Ron,I like 37.If you dont mind walking try the back corner-if you walk down the dam,use liver preferably turkey it stays on the hook better than chicken.Throw out as far as you can theres a tree line about 75 ft from the bank anywhere out in there is good.I usually use a bobber.Good luck wherever you go.:big_smile:

    The past two weekends I have spent time on lake 7. I have seen and had the best luck near the end with the trees.
