    I'll be heading down to carlyle this weekend to fish for cats. anyone up for it? Caught nearly 400 whites below the dam last weekend between our group. Don't have a boat but would like to try for my first flathead. Any suggestions on where to try? thanks for any help. Btw i will be down early saturday and prolly fish till sunday morning.

    I'm up at carlyle all the time (its only 20 min away). With the spawn on channel cats are tearing up any thing in the rocks, but we've had are best luck with sooie's dip bait and minows.
