Spent the weekend @ the Cowan Lake campground with the wife and dog. The weather was perfect and we had a great time, but I didn't do so well on the fishing. I planned to target catfish so I caught some gills & netted some shad first thing. Fished Saturday morning in 3 spots until 10 am - zippo! Hit the water again @ 10pm and fished until 3:30. I had 1 real good run on cut shad but it ended up being a 2.5lb channel Picked up another dink channel around 1:30 next to the high banks area near the cottages and that was it! I guess I should have fished for crappie/gills, but I still had fun. I also caught about 1,000 perch in my cast net while catching shad. I talked to several people over the weekend and it didn't sound like anybody did real well. I did see some saugeyes in the 14-15'' range caught and kept. Overall, it was the worst fishing I've had out at Cowan this year, but a great time anyway!
