Anyone ever try and catfish on Smith Lake in it's 240 foot of water LOL! I've been on the lake a few times with a buddy - but we were striper fishing and the whole time I was wondering, man 240 foot of water with 40-60 foot pine tops ... could you even pull a cat out of that deep of a hole LOL! We did alright on the stripers - 3 24 pounders and a 16 pounder. Anyone ever fish Smith Lake - if so where's about and what style? There are a lot of humps coming in off the main channel anywhere from 20-40 foot (and then dropped straight to 150 on up to 200 foot) that looked like it was holding some fish but we were dragging big ol' gizzies for striper and never got to set up for some cats. We were in a feeder creek off of Smith and it was 60 foot deep - shoot that's deeper than any spot on Santee Cooper. The other thing is that locals say you can't catch gizzies on that lake (they prefer to go down to the Coosa and catch bait) - we netted 24 in about a half hour of throwing - the striper get big in there so you would think it would hold some decent cats as well. Anways, let me know if you've had any success.
