    does anyone know how well the cat fishing is on the kaskaskia just below the dam at Shelbyville lake and what is the best bait to use there for flats and blues and channels? any input is good news to me because i am thinking of going up there this summer sometime for a day or weekend. Thanks

    i normally fish opposite of the dam on the north side of the lake, but i have also fished the dam quite a few times as well. i have had friends with me that have caught some monster flatty's but for some reason i have always caught gar. we fish with blue gill that we catch on the rocks right where we fish for the cats. be ready tho because i've seen some monster muskie caught on live bait down there too.
