    Well I don't know about truck loads but I have seen over 500 pounds caught the last 12 hours, People are showing up with freezers in the back of their trucks and leaving a few hours later with them full

    Jerry caught a freezer full in a few hours yesterday afternoon.

    Where are they catching truck loads at? I'm thinking about going somewhere about the middle of May to catch some as I only have about 50 in the freezer right now. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry poster I am, forgive me guys, I'm kind of slow.

    I am at the Pickwick dam campground. They are still being caught in good numbers.

    I haven't been around this morning to see what was caught last night but Friday night and early Saturday morning our group caught maybe 200 pounds of channels and blues. The bigest weighed 34.2 pounds. It was caught by jtrew crew, maybe his son caught it, I'm not sure.
