    Im new to shab but the prospect of catchin ten fish a day at ten pounds a piece seems like a good deal but id love more tips or help if anyone knows more about shab cuz i was told there are plenty a time when ull limit out with ten pounders but that seemed like it coulda been a stretch

    I have had some really good days out there. I have only been there three times but have always had great success. One day last fall I caught ten cats, three cats over nine pounds in less than one and a half hours. on another occasion I caught my record largemouth almost five pounds! All three times i have been out there i have been in a small boat. Not knowing the lake we just kinda moved around. If you are ever out there stop by the bait shop. The folks in there are really nice and i am sure would be able to help you out. Sorry i could not be better help.

    Just out of curiosity, what were you guys using for bait out there? I want to make a trip out there soon and just need some inside scoop.
