I have been way too long away from fishing! The weather has been nutz!!!
But I ventured out Monday to try out horseheads along the rocks and to set out some catfish jugs. The only thing I caught on the horseheads were a bunch of green carp. They were all over the place at Miller's Cove. Especially just west of the mouth of the cove. 10 - 12 feet of water. But it was fun even if they were trash fish. 😉 😉 I messed around for a while and checked my jugs. 20 out of 22 hooks were clean. No fish. bummed out I went on home. Tuesday morning I ventured back out to run jugs and to see if I could catch stripers instead of perch. 😉 I caught only 2 catfish out of 22 hooks. I contacted my catfish guru, Tom Wyatt, and he told me he thought that the gar had cleaned my hooks. Oh well...... I caught a 5# and a 25#. 25 # released to make babies. After pulling in my jugs, I motored around and started pounding the rock. The shad haven't moved into the rocks yet but the stripers apparently like the warmth. I kept these for the dinner table. I ventured out into the middle of the lake and started marking fish coming through. I had a 3/4 ounce sassy head with a 5" white ice Zoom paddle tail with tail dyed in chartreuse game scent. It was constant fish catching for about an hour. Then I lost the school and couldn't find them again. My shoulder got tired so I quit. 😉 Fish were running a little deep so I would cast out, count to 15, then start retrieve. Lots of fun for sure.

Since I like to fish for those "green carp" and I can't find it on any of the maps here on 6OG, would you be so kind as to tell me where Miller's cove is located?

I like the pics of the graph. To protect my shoulders I now cast with my arms to my side, and twist my body, with the Ugly Sticks I can cast a mile like this. I let those big catfish go also, because I fell sorry for them when they look you in the eye and start to grunt.

Great post Ax, as always.
Lot of good long casting videos on youtube; has helped me quite a bit.
