    Last year I was fishing at Yatesville Lake in Lawrence County, and the lake was still down so I used a couple miners, and stepped on them till guts hung out a lil bit, and left my pole right off the sand lot for about a hour and a half, and caught a 15 pounder, does anyone else know any good places to fish wants they fill the waters back up.

    never tried catfish at yatesville.. I fished there about 2 months after they first opened it for about 30 mins on the way back from huntington once and caught a good size bass withing 10 mins.. I was hooked on that lake since then.
