    On Kerr Lake in Oklahoma the bite is good. The water temp Sunday 11-19-06 was still 50 degrees. The last two trips we caught 60 and 45 blues with a few channels mixed in. Have'nt boated any big fish all fish 3 to 10 lbs. Good eaters:smile2: . Most fish caught in 2 to 11 ft. water in the trees. We did fish some 30 ft. water Sunday trying to find some bigger fish. Had 3 good slow runners on big skip's but no hookups. First tournament is December 9, Hopefully I will locate some bigger fish by then:wink: . Baits used were shad, skip's and punch bait.

    we have had great luck here as of recent. Most fish in the 40-50 lb range. This is me and a couple other BOC members. Most of them are on one body of water, but some on others. The bite is good, and pretty Consistant. Live bluegill, and worms is the ticket here.

    I have never even caught a flat or blue but I'm hoping to at least get one good blue cat this winter.
