    Going to monty on saturday morning, does anyone have any suggestions on bait or locations. I would like to put some big ones in the boat, and also take home alot of eaters. We will be going on from the 215 landing i think close to the power plant.

    Eaters aren't usually hard to find just use medium minnows & shrimp and you should do fine for them. Big cats I can't really help with them because I just have to get lucky in the heat to catch one or two.

    for eaters the list of baits goes forever...i've heard soap, corn pops, beef heart, livers, stink bait, and on and on and on...but if you are going after BIG fish then use FRESH cut bait such as white perch, gizzard shad, bream, and crappie...also don't be afraid to use huge chunks of these baits...may not get many hits but when you finally connect with a fish it will be BIG.

    If you see that 19 foot center console with a t-top stay away! That is an undercover DNR officer and he will tear your boat apart and find something to write you a ticket for! :wink:

    He needs to find something better to do like catching all those people that are littering. If they checked me once they have checked me a thousand times. They will get more money because of tickets for litters than they will people trying to fish. Or maybe those guys with the skis or tubes!!!!

    hey bo, if want to get great eating size cats at monticello all you need is stink bait called hog wild or docs catfish bait and a bag of marshmellows. yes marshmellows put 3 or 4 on a hook then dip it in that stink bait. make sure you mix up that dip bait with water and stir it until its almost soupie. also you can get great fishing size bream all over their but my luck has been very poor on bream there.good luck sat i fish their almost every sat and mon.:big_smile:
