Bad Bob’s Store reports that the fishing has been really good of late. Nice yellow catfish have been brought by the store. It is reported that they are baiting trot-lines with goldfish and carp. If fishing with rod and reel use night crawlers, stink bait or cut bait. To see the actual pictures of some of the catches go to Bad Bob’s web site. Seeing is believing-no fish story this time.
Jimmy Light was in last week and he reported some nice catches of catfish on his trot-line and rod and reel.
Every weekend there has been a host of visitors in all the fishing camps and the state park, which is a good indication that the fish are really biting.
