I have been reading through the forums and archives and have learned more on here than what I have figured out on my own in the last two years. Thanks to everyone. Now, for my first post, I want to 'share the wealth.' The channels and the flatheads are almost begging to be caught at Rend Lake. More specifically, at the North end of the lake at the subimpoundment are. It is better known as the Bonnie Dam to us locals. (If you need directions to it, you can find them at the Rend Lake website or you can message me.) They have been hitting Shad, cut-bait, and chicken-liver with garlic salt.
