    JJ, Im talking about the new Olathe Lake on Dennis Ave. the old Olathe Lake is Cedar Lake on Lone Elm Road. Its not as good, but does have some good fish left in it.

    Keith, Mike, JJ , whoever - I'm headed out to Hillsdale right now (gotta run this cold blooded merc some) but theres a good chance I'll end up at Olathe lake before the weekends over, if any of you see me out there come say something, chances are there will be an open spot on my boat as my brothers not answering his phone:confused2:. Never catfished Olathe lake before but I want to play with my new side immager out there and see what the bottom looks like. Heres what I'll be in; good luck guys!

    Got my PB Channel Cat at Olathe tonight. Weighed 13.6 lbs. on the Coffey Scales. My previous best was 9 lbs. Still trying to break that 20 lb. mark for a channel. Caught him on cut crappie off the east side dock. Only fish of the night between me and my buddy. :smile2:

    Nice channel but you would have had a way better time at Osage.
