    I will be staying with a friend in the next few weeks and she has been catching some decent size fish (mainly bass and channel cats) with her 5 year old daughter and am wondering if anyone has any tips for that lake. I read there are some flatheads there and saw shad are present. I figure throwing out a nice live Bluegill on the bottom or suspended would hopefully get me a hit.

    Anyway, anyone able to help out a fellow catfisherman?

    I have fished that lake and have caught channels and flatheads. All on Shad. I have seen about 20-25 pound flathead floating around one time also. Have fun.

    Well, I fished near one of the Marinas on the south side of the lake and had some good takes on live bluegill but only managed to catch a 7lb channel.
