    Well I just got back from a short fishing trip at Milford today. First, I netted some shad around the boat dock. It didn't take to long get more than enough bait. I even netted a 15" Walleye! :wink: Thanks for the netting advice Jay and Jim! Then, I preceeded to drift the middle of lake in about 45 feet of water for about 30 minutes. No Luck. :confused2: I then moved up into about 15-20 feet of water next to a rocky bank. Fish on! :big_smile: The first one was about a 10 pounder. Within the next hour and a half I had boated 3 more, all between 5-10 pounds. Called it quits because it was getting dark. But all and all not a bad first time catfishing.

    Thanks to the BOC for all the information put out on this site and to all the locals how steered me in the right direction. Put me on fish the first time out! :cool2:

    I was at the spillway Sunday spending some time with my girlfriend and they were letting a lot of water out for Milford. I wanted to throw my net, but there was always someone fishing against the wall.

    Because she is susceptible to seduction, so I keep her away from you :smile2:
