    I have never been to Shanty Hollow Lake, however my friend and i are planning on a trip to the lake next week. Can anyone tell me if there is a restriction on boat and motor size? Also, if anyone knows the lake and has any advise in fishing for channel cats i would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    I do not think there is a boat restriction but there is a motor restriction of 10 HP.

    I have fished a few times up there with limited success. I would go to the left from the ramp and into the small coves off main lake. I feel this lake is beginning to come back again. In a couple more years it should be in good shape.

    Good luck.

    If you don't have much luck there you can hit Green River below the 185 bridge.

    Thanks for the info,I better check out the motor size for sure, I have a 50hp and would hate to drive the distance and not be able to fish. The suggestion about the river gives me something to consider.Summer is coming to a close to fast, I am not ready for winter....lol
