Girlfriend likes to fish, but refuses to get in a kayak so I'm looking for a good place to catch some nice cats from the bank. Any suggestions on location and bait?

Eisenhower Park or the Damn should have some good bank's to fish. The area around Eisenhower is usually more like cliff's, but with water level up should be great for bank fishing.

Scratch that. I heard Eisenhower was now closed to everyone but essential park personnel.

I need to do some bank fishing.   Joe Slab and his son have been doing well fishing for catfish from the bank.  They caught a 30# flathead the other day.  They released that trophy.  [smile]

Ax  If you can find a grass covered bank, I,ve had good luck with rising water. I think they are after worms and bugs coming up. Just watch out for chiggers and the oil off of poison Ivy. You don't need another doctors vist.

I'm right there with ya, Axman. I was able to get the kayak out Thursday evening by launching from the road at the end of HWY 84 (road ends in water). Didn't catch anything, but it did my soul good just to be on the water. Let us know what you find.

I found a coupla of places.  But decided to fish behind my friend's house out by Mill Creek.  Reason being is that they have a grill, nice comfortable chairs, etc right at the water.  [smile]

Bought some night crawlers and some Lil Smokies.  Rigged up 5 rods and set them in my redneck PVC rod holders.  Lil Smokies out fished earth worms 2:1.

The black drum came in like crazy and I was catching them as fast as I could get them off the hook.

I was getting ready to move and one rod went down and I knew it was a kitty fish.  He was about 5 pounds.

I caught 5 or 6 right before it started getting dark.  

Only downer about that day was all the crap washing up on the shore.  Propane tanks, broken skis, etc.

I did get to see the boat house go down.  It was a little windy out of the NW.  The boat house next to where I was was riding the waves since the walkway was already gone.....all of a sudden, the boat house went up and then down, tipped over and flipped....a second later the black pontoons popped up......sad to see.  This guy had two boat houses....now there are no boat houses........

Caught some nice ones from the bank this past week end.  I used bait shrimp and earth worms on the same hook.  Caught some nice fish.  Only problem I had was that I was fishing in an area with a rocky bottom.  My weight would get wedged in the rocks and the fish would steal my bait and not cause the rod tip to move.....bummer.

Fish I caught were in about 20 feet of water I'm guessing.  I am very familiar with the terrain that I was fishing so I know it's structure.

I only had one incident this week end and that was my fault.  2/0 Kahl hook in the shin.  [smile]

The areas I'm fishing are on private property out past Mill Creek.  You have to use a 4 X 4 to get in there.

I've also been fishing at Hippy Girl's place.  She bought her a Zebco 33 kit.  Broke the rod the first time the hook got hung.

I gave her an old Okuma rod and told her NOT to bend the rod.  Grab the line and pull.......

Gotta train 'em
