    If the weather is good this weekend I'm heading to Woff creek
    Have only fished it a few times but every time I have fished it the fish catching is like fishing in a barrel.

    Tom their are some nice blues in that lake, you just have to fight your way through all the channel cats. We use to catch them on the oppsite side of the hot water discharge in a cove with a bunch of trees in it. It looks like the hot water funnels in the cove and the blues seem to shy away from the real hot water. I hope this helps let us know and good luck.

    Yeah Tom their are alot of blues in the lake. A couple years ago someone caught a 50 and some buddies of my caught several 10-20 lbers last winter. I would fish it more but you suppose to wear a life jacket the whole time and when it gets hot out that the last thing I need is heater around my belly, like I said good luck and tear them up.

    I dont even think i could pull a bow back anymore:wink:

    I got a call from a buddy of mine that went on a three day fishing trip for blue's in Ok on lake Oohogh (Spelling) that is having a time of his life.

    Him and his buddy has landed over 30 blues in two days from 10lbs to 58lbs so far.They are fishing again today then head home tomorrow.He said their arms are sore...Poor guys.

    I used to fish Oolagah lake a lot years ago.Its a good lake for bass crappie and catfish but its not very boat friendly.You can run up on mudbar right out in middle of lake.Ok license is cheap too.
