    If they don't, they should. I think a really good walleye fisherman from up north, with a backtrolling rig, would kick some serious butt on cats.

    I don't but I've seen several on the lakes. I think that would work good in the deeper lakes but since they sit deep in the water Marion wouldn't be a good lake for them.

    I see some when people move here with the military. They are not real usable here. Our water is alot shallower here. Most of the water I fish is less than 10-12 foot going up to 2 foot or less.

    I see lots of them on Greers Ferry Lake in Feb. and March, they belong to northern type folks down here fish'n for walleye, the world record came out of here back in 1982, weighed 22 pounds, 11 ounces, also the record Hybrid Striped bass that weighed 27lb 5oz came out of Greers in 1997 and the record brown trout, that weighed 40lb 4oz was caught just below the dam in 1992.
