    i was out catching shad at the spillway here at knox lake last weekend and happened to see what appeared to be a large flat surface and inhale several bluegills that were near the surface, well i had a free eve and went down to fish tonight about 7:30, caught a 6 lb channel on a 5 inch live gill and a 10 lb flat on a small live sucker chub, 1st flat i have ever caught out of there after a lot of fishing, it seemed i just caught the tail end of the bite, 2 fish in about 30 minutes and none in another hour and a half of fishing, i think ill head down a lil earlier tomorrow see if i can do any better and ill bring the camera tomorrow, sorry no pics tonight :embarassed:

    Me and my girlfriend was out there sunday during the day i caught 1 little dink channel. But i did see a large channel surface there in the shallows. There prob. is some hogs in there as many gills and shad are in there and there stuck! Congrats on the great fishing!

    Good deal on that flat out of the hole. Never caught one out of there before.

    You ever catch any flats on the main lake dave? If so you have any ideas of good spots. I dont want to drive to peidmont this weekend and ive never really fished anywhere but the spillway and over by the bait shop.
