    Fished below Pickwick Dam area tonight on the catwalk next to the boils.

    Got there around 9 PM, rolled out about 2 AM. Only 2 catfish were caught the whole time I was there and at least another 6 ppl were fishing with me. The first catfish weighed in at around 3-4 pounds and the other could have been used for bait.

    Besides the catfish there were two drums, a gar, and a bunch of skipjack landed... most of the skipjack were caught by me using my "skipjack crack" lures.

    But try as I might, the catfish just would not bite for me, or anyone else for that matter. I used cut skipjack, live shad, cut shad, and doc's catfish getter... got a few nibbles on the cutbait but that was about it. The runt catfish was caught on a worm and the "big" cat was caught on a crawfish.

    Hopefully I will have better luck next time!

    Me and you are in the same boat right now, I've been out twice for cats this year with no results to show for it. Oh well, it's still early, got a whole summer ahead of us.
