    Caught 3 nice cats a week ago Saturday night, a 5.5# a 6.5# and an 8.5# in Claytor Lakes Peak Creek Hollow on an outside bend just after you leave the cove where the Rock House marina is. Had a lot of woody structure covering the bottom in about 28 foot of water. A bonus for the trip I finally learned how to identify woody structure using my Humminbird 323C fish finder.Caught them on Catawba worms on circle hook between 12:30 and 02:30 in the morning. Got there late so I wasn't able to catch any gills so just fished with the bean worms and did pretty good. Sorry for the late report, I lost the flash card out of my camera and just found it to get the pics. off of it.

    It sounds like you had a great time, Steve. That's the kind of catch I wouldn't mind landing.

    It looks like the Catawba worms came through again for you! :cool2:

    Good report. these some good fishing all around that area. Channels, and Flatheads. Hybrids and stripers can be killer there two at the right time of the year... Try inbetween conrads and Rock house, the old ski ramp..
