    I caught a 40# flat right there off the dock quite a few years back. Did you go with a guide or by yourselves?

    We actually caught all these off the bank there. I used to guide on weekends there though so I know most hot spots by season.

    I used to live there, Summerville. Fished all over both lakes. When I moved back home we took 5-6 yearly trips and fished with Joe Drose. Last couple trips we rented house boats from Bell`s marina. Fishing slowed some down there after Hugo went thru but seems to have rebounded some now. Really nice catch and thanks for sharing.

    Joe is a good friend and a very good fisherman with some good stories if you can get him talking.I never fished there until after Hugo around 1990 but it is one of my favorite places to fish.
