Catfishwalker and myself went to Energy lake yesterday and fished from about 1pm to 10pm. Only caught a few small channel cats and about a dozen bluegills. No big flatheads to report but I did get about 100 nice size shad with my cast net right before dark next to the bank. Other folks along the bank were catching good size crappie and small channels also. We also stopped at Barkley dam before getting to Energy lake, to catch a few skipjacks, but they were not hitting good at all. There were some being caught closer to the dam by other folks.
