    Have caught cats around 10lbs around the dams while trolling for sand bass. Also did good at the fish attractor over in Jacksons Neck.
    Only thing is, I haven't fished there in over 20 years.

    Dang, I would've loved to it that low, See what kind of structure was still left.
    Back in winter of '82-'83, me and some friends actually was able to do some icefishing over by the ranger station. Actually caught a couple of crappie also. :smile2:

    We use to fish it often for the saugeye and sandies, but it was closed 2 years ago due to low water. Not sure if it has recovered.

    its has recovered nicely. I havent seen it this full in a long time. The crappie house is full of people everyday now so they must be hittin. havent fished for cats there in a month or so. went bass fishing there today and caught 23 fish in about 45 minutes. fastest bass fishing ive ever had. Its a nice lake. probly no trophy cats in it but plenty of eaters and its only 15 minutes from my house.
