    Hoping someone out there might be able to offer a good suggestion on a lake for some Channel Cat bank-fishing in the Mississippi area. I live in Memphis and would really like to find a spot for night fishing. Thanks!

    I know some guys who said they fished the dam area at Grenada and did well. And the spillways at the lakes up that way- Grenada, 'Butla, Enid, and Sardis- are supposed to be good. I can't tell you from experience on them, its just what I have heard. But generally the fishin is all good down here..:wink:

    Were they fishing in the Lake above the dam or spillway below?

    I've fished all those spillways but would like to find a good spot on the bank at a lake. Kinda tired of riprap, current and snags. Especially at night.

    Patrick, they said they were fishing in the lake just above the dam, like in the deepest water, and with a big hunk of bait.
