    Went to falls, got 13 blues. Biggest one was 12lbs. Water temp. was 47 this morning. Still very muddy. Plenty of bait in the boat ramp cove. I think tomahawk is right. Those juggers must have caught all the big ones out of there. You dont even mark the big schools like you use to. There's still a good bit of small ones. :big_smile: see ya

    There aren't that many big ones left in there. One boat jugging can cover that whole lake in a day. Did you catch bait there at Falls? I've always brought it with me because it is such a pain down there. Are you fishing up the lake or down in the lower section? Thanks

    I fished falls sat. nite 6 - 9:30 and 11 - 3:30 AM (had to eat a shore dinner). Bait was real easy in the boat ramp cove, almost 100% perfect threadfins and 2 big gizzards. I fished down river and boated 6 cats, 2 channels 4 blues nothing over 15 lbs. Lost one at the boat on light tackle, fought like 20 lbs. but never saw it. Released all but one tasty blue.

    It's been afew years since I've caught any bigger blues from there. From what i've seen from last year the flathead population is doing great down there. I got 4-6 flats this summer at 30 or above. Plus tones of smaller ones.
