    Cats were killing shad fishing 25 - 30' of water right in the original river that was damned to create hoover. cast out and let it drop to the bottom with whole fresh shad. The two guys I fish with caught about 16 fish again and the biggest was 15-16 lbs. I am trying to find a digital camera because I am taking one of them out on my boat tonight for another round of slayin the deep cats. They sure fight their butts off coming out of deep water. I landed around a 10 pounder this year on a micro rod and extremely light line. Had to fight him pretty well but it was in shallow water so it worked out. These fish would have snapped that line like a twig how they fight and run in the deep stuff. Local guys holler at me and we can make a night run whenever you want. I am on the honey hole now.

    Sounds like you had a great time. FYI...Hoover is only a 10 hp. lake for some that want to hit it with a bigger boat.

    Yeah I have an 85 HP on my boat...can do around 45 mph so not too bad for an aluminum v hull boat. I just use the troller to get to this spot. You know at the hour I fish no wake at all.....and the troller can get me there in 5 minutes so no big deal. Kind of relaxing too not dealing with the rumble from jungle that is my 77 evinrude motor hahahahhaa. I will try to get a digital this weekend, but the ole wallet is gettin stretched thin. If Tea would just go with me once we could use his lol (hint hint). Anyway the next thing I pay for will be the TSS seasonings then the camera.

    same here. I am going up around 930pm to 10pm as I have a late class. I am gonna stop below the damn and net some shad first. I will be on the north end. I will try to get on here before I head out and see what you are up to, that way maybe we can bump into each other.

    I will be there just at dark. I'll be hitting the baldridge ramp. You'll know it's me, several people think I'm from the DNR with the way my boat is set up. If you see me just say hi. I don't think I'm going to catfish tonight, I'll be bowfishing. What area will you be in and what does your boat look like and truck you drive.

    will be in a black dakota, have a tan boat that says LA Z DAZE on the side. you will see the big ole motor propped up. I will launch up north some place, most likely oxbow.....which is REAL close to my honey hole. Maybe we will bump into each other.

    went again last night, only caught 2 fish, good eating size.....ended up falling asleep but I didn't have many shad. Gotta get a new anchor too lol....need two of course so you dont drift in circles. I drifted right through the honey hole and that was where I caught the only fish yesternight.
