    Id be catfishing with shad but i recently got my castnet snagged and lost it. Gonna try worms and chicken livers. Hopefully i get a few nice fish for a fish fry but im not planning on getting the big boys unless i get a drum or something to use for bait. Any of you guys been doing any good there lately? also is it illegal to snag there cus even though eating them aint fun catching a huge carp would be fun.

    no snagging, no castnests, just rod and reel.

    I was there last weekend, and the bankers were catching a lot of drum. Don't know what they were using for bait but the most successful fisherman had minnow buckets!
