I'ver caught some small ones, but none of the lunkers we know are there.
I have seen the big fish on my sounder right out in the middle near the surface.

Plenty of saratoga though.

A mate reckons he trolls a big lump, that has a trench carved through it from the old days, with deep divers. Says this lump is out in the middle at the dam wall end, seems to get a few big ones there so maybe its true. I have trolled the deep banks on quite a few visits for one good fish hooked and lost. However the big fish do get into the very shallow areas but are mighty shy.... nuf said.


Chanos.
Fishing is not a matter of life and death, it is far more serious than that.

This is where I've got my one or two good ones from.
