    had acustomer that come in today saying that they had a great day catfishing yesterday up river .above the bridge in franklin they said they caught 8 10 plus pound channel cats and 1 15lb flathead .he lost two big fish also one he couldnt get up that broke off...then he had one that he got up to the boat that he said would go 40+ pounds that the hook pulled out and it was gone...so it seems to be good fishing up the river.....:big_smile:

    Thanks for the report. I gotta get down there sometime and give West Point a try. Sometimes a man just needs a change of scenery.

    Fishing is good for channel cats below the West Point dam. There is a causeway you can fish from right in the tailrace. You can't get very close by boat due to off limits buoys.
