    I did pretty good over the summer catching channels up to 8 pounds but I went a couple weeks ago and didnt have any luck finding them. Somebody was saying their are blues in their but i have not caught one yet..

    I just got me a small boat at the beginning of the summer so still figuring out the lake also. We fish a lot on the west end around the twin bridges and the Denver corner ramp and have done well in those areas at catching channels. I grew up fishing for channels so I am still trying to figure out blues and have a ways to go for sure. Their are also some good crappie in there to. I am hoping to get back out there soon, deer hunting has been taking up a lot of my time.

    Good luck. I hope you guys get into them. What does your boat look like so I can look for you out there next time I go? I have a 14 foot Aluminum boat with a small nissan motor on it.

    I went out today and didnt have much luck catching shad. I think i need to add some more weight to my net to get it down to them quicker. So I ended up using some frozen shad but didnt have any luck with it.

    shoot.... I live close to T-bird and have pretty decent luck out there. I could show you around the lake after the new year. Send me an email at okcdiscgolfer(at)hotmail I'm sure we can find a time that is good for us both.
