    The lake has went to crap buddy but if you're interested in catfishing,fish the area around kelly's cove at the point on the entrance,along the south shoreline to fishermans wharf,and the campground area but beware it is extremely shallow around the campgrounds.

    Paint has been slow since the spawn but we are just now starting to catch a few channels here and there on cut bait(shad,chubs).They have been coming at night in around 8-12FT. of water with deeper water adjacent to it.NO giants an occasional 8#'er but most average around 2-3#. Pre-spawn we totally slayed the cats on Paint with a couple over 15 but the past month has been slow to say the least.

    I dont know about now but a couple weeks ago there were over a 100 dead carp in one cove! :eek: They think the what caused it was a virus called zerimia SVC. I have also seen alot of dead bluegill and cats in the dumpsters! :mad:
