    I will fish lake Conway at least one day of Memorial Day weekend. Has anyone caught any cats down there in the last week or two? I know they catch a bunch down there. Good Luck.

    Where do you plan to fish on the lake?

    I usually put my boat in at the old Brannon's landing. I have bream fished that area and across from Brannon's for about 35 years and probably haven't fished much anywhere else. I have put in at Lawrence and Kapps a time or two. I know the locals who catfish say to look for the deep holes. I mainly fish out of a Ranger bass boat, but on conway, I'll use my flatbottom, which has no depth finder.
    Can you steer me to a location I might have a chance for a daytime cat?
    I may fish conway the night of May 31 and would then set out trotlines.
    Like I said, I can catch bream there with no problem, but the cats are new to me there.
    thanks for any help you might give.

    There are several old ponds in that area:
    Cub Pond
    Round Pond
    Jenske Pond
    Acklin Pond

    I'll stop at Bates Field and Stream to get some crickets. I will bream fish for a while to catch some eaters and some for bait. I will ask them the whereabouts of these ponds you mentioned. Thanks a lot.
