    i've never fished it but we used to do alot of work around Majestic. It had some good looking spots in that area. One of the guys I worked with said he did pretty good fishing for flatheads.

    We went and caught some minnows, and had caught a little shellcracker, we used it and caught a bass. The Catfish werent biting the minnows, but they were hitting real good on nightcrawlers, we caught 13 in all, only 1 mudcat, rest were channel cats. The biggest was a Channel Cat about 16 inches.
