    Don't know much about it Tall. But, you let me know when and we will sure find out by trial and error if we have to! Hopefully during a warm weather run. Heck in a boat at freezing temps.

    well i can tell yall one thing- me, the boat, and dam # 4 got a date for jan 1st. Start the new year out right . Yall are welcome to join me. i went sat and fished from the bank with not even a hit .A boat with two men and two young boys put in at the same time and went strait for the dam .they anchored up and came back in withen an hour with 7 blues the best two was around 12-15 lbs . i talked to the older man and he told me they got 14 the day befor and gave me some of his little hints and tricks. well if the weather is right on the first i will find out if his hints work . :big_smile:

    robert have you no shame. prying that information out of those poor guys. taking advantage of them in their christmas spirit of good will toward men. hmmmm, might have to give that a try.

    i dont think so kev , but you never no. Don i plan on being there around 8-9 am . I found a spot on the way there to get shad and then ill be there . are you going to bring your boat if not let me know. I talked to a man today and he said the water is perfect. the dam isnt but maybe 3-500 yards from the ramp - thats where ill be .
