    Hey all - this is my first post here, but i've read many very helpful threads.
    Anyway, I'm heading out tomorrow for a couple of days (and nights) of Piney Bay catfishing. Anybody have any experience fishing the area?

    Thanks

    We'll get there tomorrow around 4:00-5:00 to set up camp and hopefully hit the water quickly.

    Welcome to the BOC, Will! I've fished for bass and stripers in Piney Bay, but never for catfish. If you ever fish between Dardanelle and Cherokee, I may be able to help you with some spots.
