I finally get to give a good report. put the boat in around 6pm kinda did alittle riding and checked out some spots till about 7 and then set up in a small cove off one of the main channels. Didnt get any shrimp today, we had worms,minnows,livers,doughbait, and bream. we tried it all. In the first spot we caught probably 9 small channel cats and 4 small flatheads on all chicken livers. After it got dark we moved to the right bank at the dam that Mark had told me about and casted into that first small little cove. Pulled 2 channel cats that were 7lbs. and another that was 5lbs. and again a bunch of smaller ones. was pretty steady action all nite till we packed up and left around 1:45am. I enjoyed myself. thanks for the tips Mark.
