    I went last friday and we did alright. We caught 20 biggest being 7 1/2 down to 1lb kept a few for dinner and let the big ones go. We caught all our fish on dip bait and punch bait. We were in a boat fishing timber. We tried the river a lil bit but only was able to get one lil one. I have been having my best luck at cheney from a boat this year but a friend of mine has been doing alright from shore. I just keep going on the wrong days when i fish from shore i guess :smile2:

    They are there, but very few and far between. You almost have to get lucky, and most are caught by guys fishing for something else.:roll_eyes:

    The timber we was fishing is nw of wenzel cove. We were in about 8 to 10 ft of water. The was just a couple of limbs sticking up that we tied to but under the water there was alkinds of brush. I could tell when you realed in a fish because he was bouncing of all kinds of limbs. Plus all the hooks i lost out there. You can fish the upper end of the cove by shore but u will have to wade way out to get to where we were if you dont have a boat. The upper end of the cove has more trees sticking out of the water and its only like 3 or 4 foot. We didnt get any bites up that way though. Hope this helps
