Thanks to all on my post for Bartlett. I am headed to the Salt River off the 288, down FR 396 for 3 days this weekend. Just like Bartlett, catch some gills before heading out and hunt for the big ones. Are the cats known to be in this area? 3 weeks ago I tested out my new (very old) sears jon boat off of School House point and caught a 5lb Chanel in the swamp like area. I only have a trolling motor and could not make it all the way to the Salt River; so I figure I would make camp off the Forest Road this time. I have also heard that the Cats are deep now (like the middle of the lake???). Any imput would be helpful.
