    I'm planning a quick jugging trip up to Mark Twain with a friend in search of fillets. I normally only fish the lake for crappie but have caught plenty of cats while doing so--very fun on an ultralight!

    Anyway I'm hoping that someone out here in BOC land will have a little advice with respect to patterns, depth and bait that might help us out on this jugging trip.

    I hear it has been a little slow up there but I'm sure will will find them somewhere. We are staying at Cannon Dam Cabins and will provide a full report when we return!

    i would use shad off of points in the river channels, have had a lot of luck with channels and blues doing this. have seen some nice fish caught in 20+ ft of water with only a 3-4 ft leader on the jug.
