Went this morning for a few hours at daybreak. Smack down. Double hook up’s easily. We quit after the ice chest was full, 34 for a couple hours. Next to the bulkhead with chicken liver.

Gotcha, I'm on the west side of the lake and normally launch at April Plaza. I'll be in a white Skeeter center console. The seven coves ramp is free isn't it?

The 830 launch is free but the 7 coves launch is private and they will tow your truck!

I called April Plaza yesterday and the lady said they're open. She made it sound like things would continue on as normal until the county says otherwise.

Based on the pictures y'all are posting, what y'all sayin' is...

Yes sir. I've got about half a quart sized Ziploc bag of frozen minnows (big ones) from my last catfishing trip, so that should be a decent mess of fish worth.

Love following this. Im also boat shopping. Nothing as nice as those posted, but to get on the water. Good resource for fish ID? In the photo above, are those all the same type of catfish? Always want to stay legal.

Those are all channels and blues. Mostly channels from the looks of it. You can have 25per day combined on those species. You would know a flathead if you saw one, they look totally different.

Wish I was out there today fellas. My buddy that was supposed to go with me is afraid to because of the stay at home order. Anyone want to go this weekend?
