    To all you fellas fishing for bass and stripers at Pleasant don't be scared to drop a gill off the boat at night. I've never fished Pleasant for Flatheads but my buddy consistently catches 25 to 35 lbers out there. He showed me some pictures from 2 weekends ago and he had one that was 27# and one that was 31#. Good Luck to all and drive safe this weekend. There's a lot of drunks out this weekend

    I have always had trouble catfishing at plesant because it is usualy snag city..

    The AquaFria should be a good spot once the closure is not in affect.

    I don't know the lake well but he said he catches pretty much everywhere. He uses heavy line and heavy poles to get them up and away from the snags. Apparently there's a section that's closed off due to some Eagles nesting and I think he fishes real close to where you can't go any farther into there nesting grounds. He claims they fight a lot harder and there a lot prettier than Bartlett. If there's such a thing.
