    Chris,

    Is that up where on one side there is what looks like a little campground or something (lots of trailers and a ramp). Then, on the other side is a dam and a rock wall, with a few buoys having "fish concentration area" on them? I'm still learning this lake. I was up there on Monday and didn't get any bites off of bream.

    I stopped by Monday evening just to see what was happening there. There was a guy there throwing a cast net and he caught 4 or 5 nice gizzard shad an several dozen good threadfins. The people there fishing from the bank had only caught one small catfish. There were some guys in a boat with only a trolling motor fishing around the steel walls of the dam. They only had throw lines - no rods, but should have caught fish where they were fishing. They were just lucky the game warden didn't show up while they were fishing so close to the dam.

    Now is a good time to get a big striper below the dam from the rockpile. Be very careful!!!
