I have been wanting to try fishing in the mornings and just do not feel like getting up on days off. Well this morning my wife had to work so I was awake anyways. I went and was expecting to catch a fwe stripes, I was wrong. The gar were back in my spot and I could not keep bait out for them. I moved to one of my spots for catfish about 9:00 and was greeted very quickly by some good pulls. I landed 6 between 5 and 15 lbs all in about 20minutes. After that they just stopped. Made my morning!! Wish I had pics but I was by myself and did not keep any of them.

I have hit them like that just below where you were fishing last year, we had 5 in the boat in 20 min between 10 to 20 pounds but the just quit when the sun broke out. It's not fishable now up and almost blood red when I passed over at 11 am.

Yeah, whats up with that? They get some rain up north or something? I had planned on trying it again this evening when I get off UNTIL I saw what it looked like. Still be good fishing at the weir though.

Yeah it is Lanier, they can open the gates and let more water out BUT usually they do it slowly. Most of the time when it comes up it is due to rain north of us. The first of the week is when Lanier is letting the most out and the weekend is usually when they are letting the least out.
