    Anyone doing any good lately. Seen several people out on the banks this week. Drove to red rock for one 6lb channel. Oh well at least I didn't get skunked.

    Frank, I think you missed the redrock bite by two months!. Well, I don't know that for sure, I am just guessing.

    I heard some wild stories last week so I got my butt out to the local dams because the stories were good. I never got a flathead of any size, I was out 4 evenings this week. I got some channels. Mostly they had big heads like they were males. They guard the nest like flats do? Some of them were 75% head with a skinny little body. I took four home one night and some had eggs yet. The biggest one was maybe 10# and the rest were about 2-3#. Good luck.

    I got in on the tail end of the crappie spawn too. A lot of articles are saying the channels will spawn in July. I'll just have to get out there and see.
