    Hi and welcome to the BOC:big_smile:
    I haven't been fishing the Pomme yet, but will very soon. My father has a place near Carson's Corner and I go with him often. My dad, step mother and that side of the familly never go fishin. They just take boat rides on Pomme De Terre:sad2: fun, but I am a catfisherman so I head out by myself for at least a couple of hours while I am there. If you want to go cattin together sometime let me know. I will be there at his place the weekend after next.

    fishing below flat bridge off of y hwy, had a little spill Sunday while putting in the boat(10 ft flat bottom) slipped on the wet concrete going down the bridge and fell hit the bottom of my back and shoulder on the concrete , had a big goose egg at the bottom of my spine and some scratches but had to bait the line anyways, only came away with a 6# flat and a 3# channel and alot of bare hooks. that is a great fish in Your avatar!

    I have a lake house at Nemo and fish there sometimes, usually end up at Warsaw but if I'm broke or lazy I fish up near Bolivar Landing. I catch alot of nice channels up there but not many flatheads although thats what I'm usually targeting. I mainly fish with big live bluegill up there, sometimes shad. With the lake up its hard to find the fish. Chris
