    Hey new to the board, but love to Catfish. I usually fish alot below Wheeler Dam. I went Saturday, but came home skunked. When i was leaving a couple of fisherman launching their boat asked about my luck. They asked if I was at the Dam or down river, and said everyone is wearing them out down river. So can anyone here help out. My motor isnt that great, so I won't go at night anymore.

    Craig,

    Welcome to the BOC. You will definately enjoy it. Their are many experienced fisherman willing to spread the advice and joke enough to keep you going through the droughts. I have been fishing Lay Lake close to the dam and the fishing has not been great the last few outings. I believe the blues are spawning here and it may be the case at Wheeler. My brother fishes Guntersville and he reports pretty much the same. I will be heading below the dam on the next trip...I'll let you know how it goes.

    I hate to hear about your motor. What exactly did you need help with?

    Craig, first off welcome the BOC, it's a great place full of knowlege and good folks. It truly is a brotherhood.

    Not sure about below the dam, but I've been having luck upstream between Huntsville and Triana.

    This site sounds like a great place to hang out. I was just asking about what the guys meant about down river. I guess the blues are spawning and feeding down river. I only caught a few skipjacks at the dam and didnt see any shad running. Thanks for the welcome, see ya around.
