I was at lock C old guy was catching em to freeze say he been catching em for 3 days. I cant swear he wasnt lying but they were hitting wed. I caught 2 was all the bait i needed. Well good luck people and if anyone else fishing my area post some reports i been trying to spread good reliable info so any yall could share is much appreciated. Oh yea they are catching massive numbers of cats at Bumpus Mills Marina using jugs 6-10 feet deep baited with garlic hot dogs.
