    I am heading home to visit the family for a week here in a couple days and I plan on dusting my boat off while I'm home and trying to catch some fish! I'm pretty excited, I haven't been catfishing in 6 months! :crazy: I was mainly wondering if anybody has been to Markland lately? Hows the fishing down there? And what species are around? We did real well one day last january for sauger down there, anybody know if cats, sauger, skipjacks, or even striper are hanging around? Thanks in advance guys and gals!!!

    Sorry Max havnt been down there sice the first weekend in october. I havnt even really heard about anybody catching anything. Im sure you could hook into a big blue if ya find them and as long as theres some current.

    Max...we fished close to there last weekend and had a pretty decent day. The river is getting ready to go way up though....so you may have to wait. All fish were caught on fresh cut shad IN THE CURRENT!! (Aint that right Vern???) LMAO

    That is kinda right Scott. Your anchor and boat was in heavy current, but down in the bottom of that 50 foot hole it is pretty calm. You guys did better than we did on Saturday though, but you would have had a hard time keeping up Friday. Vern
