Well I went to Catfishermans Paradise 2 last night for the first time. I have heard mixed things about the lake, but my buddy wanted to go, and I can't turn down fishing, so I went with him as well as my sister. We got there around midnight and fished until about 8 AM this morning. They have 3 lakes at about 3 acres each. There were probably 100 + people when we got there fishing. Took us awhile to find an open spot but we finally did. Through my first line out while we were still un packing the car, and not 5 minutes later, clicker was going off, first fish of the night/morning a 10 lb flattie. 20 minutes later my little sister caught her first flathead ever a 20 lb. 30 minutes after that I hooked into a 30 pounder. We ended up catching 6 flatheads from 10 to 30 pounds in the 8 hours we were there. The guys next to us were catching them left and right. Never saw any real big ones caught, but it was a good time. Once the light came up and we could actually see things its a pretty nice set up. Water is pretty clean, did not see a single dead fish. Everyone was really nice, they had little shelters built up all around the lakes, nice little set up they have. Fish were pretty healthy, one of the ones I caught had some spots on it, but you see that everywhere even in the state parks. Just thought I would let people know how it was for us. I am sure the pay lake haters will get on here and bash, but for anyone curious about this lake, give it a try.
