Thanks for the info Frostman. It's kinda funny, while you were catching cats on bream parts my friend Rango was in Allison catching bream on worms. I been fishin the crappies pretty heavy but gonna start on the cats.Frostman said:We were slow trolling bream parts in 15 to 25 feet of water.
The hump is right out in front of the old swimming area at joslin park.I dont have gps coordinates or anything like that but it is pretty easy to mark if you roll over it enough.I would say about 50-75 yards off shore maybe more.I always do better on the downlake side of the hump especially if they are pulling water.I use bluegills for bait almost exclusively , sometimes live and scaled on one side sometimes cut in half.The truly big cats (if there are any that live up to that title ) are below the dam but you have to bank fish for them and have long distance casting ability.You also have to put up with the crowds that often are there at night.I have seen 30+ pounders caught down there but have never got one that big myself.Better chance of hooking a flat down there also.I use 4-5 ounce weights and get the bait presented on bottom with a lift bobber as close to the dam as I can get.If the water is running hard put on more weight as thats the best time to hook one.Frostman said:It was a cooler full. Ranged in size from a minimum ob 12 inches on up to the largest which was close to 7 lbs. Too bad they didn't have a big fish contest that night; I believe we could have taken that prize ( close though) with the one 7 pounder we had.
What kind of bait do you use on the points?
Where specifically is the hump you're talking about. I fish one that's between Joslin Pointe and the point where the 2 power line towers are.
