    Channel cat heaven average around 4 pounds but by the dozens . Catch them near the pump house by boat or land it is a honey hole. The crappie are caught by the dozens also . Only problem is the cats quit biting at dark .....lol....I havent a clue why but they do .

    Toby,me and catmankev used to go there all the time.We learned about drift fishing from Steve Brown of catfishsafari and have been hitting Baldwin lk. alot for the blues.I always liked Nashville because its not rough like Baldwin and very secluded.We have been fishing Nashville for over 20 years so I am sure we have crossed paths.I have a fish and ski Monarch"red" boat with a 90 hp-I use my trolling motor there and catmankev has a new Lund Crappie edition.We used to go there mainly in a jon boat though,me and catmankev are both large guys and if you ever see us say hi and we'll do the same.I really like night fishing there using lighted bobbers in the bushes.I cant wait to get back out there and hope to run into you there.:big_smile:
