We really got into em' this morning fishing the big water below Wheeler dam. We rode up by the dam and filled the bait tank with gizzard and yellow tail shad easily and started drifting them below the floodgates.

We probably caught between 15-20 smallmouth and largemouth bass with the smallest being maybe 2.5 lbs and the biggest being a 6lb small mouth. Oh yea, I also caught the biggest catfish of my life (not a catfisherman) at 18 lbs. My buddie who took my pictures has a habit of cutting off my head in pictures so I repaid him in his picture with his 3lb smallie.

My 6lb smallie



18 lb. Flathead Cat



Me repaying the favor (cut off his head) with his nice smallie.

We fished the floodgates. They had about 30 of them partially open and that is where the fish were.
