    Welcome to the BOC Carl.

    fishstick is right poisonpits and cassk both live up there in Mena and both fish lake wilhemena for cats. The fish I'm holding in my avatar I caught on that lake when I went up there to fish with poisonpits. Poisonpits has caught some nice cats out of there too and he is always glad to help out a brother and show em the ropes.

    Thanks for the response. I would appreciate some advice on bait, rigging and whatever else you could tell me. We are going to fish rod and reel from my boat. I know the lake resonably well...(but I'm not asking for you to tell my your honeyhole :smile2:.) Some general information about depth and areas would also be appreciated.
    Carl
