    Nice catch. I'm glad to see the bite picking up. What did you catch them on?

    Thanks for the report Scottie! I really don't know how you managed to fish around all the snaggers:crazy: I would seem to me that they would just keep running into your lines. Looks like you had a hell of a night anyway WOW

    Looks like you had a good night Scott. Thanks for sharing. Had to replace the floor in my boat. I will be done with everything today. Now it is time to get serious. Congrats on a great night of fishing.

    I agree 100%, I went out last night also and caught about 15 total, biggest being 32 and 26 pounds. Some were 2 feet deep and others were a 20+ on the channel ledges. Had a good time! Fished again today with all the chaos and still caught 11, all in the 3-10 pound range. Scotty was going to take pictures for me but I was tired and didnt want to bother their fishing. Chris

    We're thinking about snagging and catfishing around Brown Bend this weekend. Any suggestions on shad? you think they can be found in the coves?

    Congrats Scotty on 2 good nights out. I might have to pull anchor from the river some time and make it down there and do some lake fishing.

    Thanks for sharing. :cool2:

    Ya the fish have really been biting down there like scott said. Saturday night we caught around 30 fish 4 was in the 20s and 4 in the teens rest were 10 to 5 or so. Sunday caught around 20 fish biggest around 20. Monday caught around 20 fish biggest around 20. Ya seems like all the boat traffic from the snaggers havent really affected the bite to much.
