Does anyone on this Forum Fish the North End of the Lake?

I jug fish and Stripper fish.

Where is the best place to set my jugs, Mouth of the Washita River?, up the Cumberland Cut?
Coves? Ledges of the River Channel? 

I have tried lots of places over the past couple of years but without much success in the Catfish Department. I could use a little Advice. 

Thanks in advance.

Little John, I don't go north much but last week I set my jugs in 25 fow on the Washita Flats.  Caught 14 in about 4 hours.  Water is pretty clear in that area.

If your jugging you might want to fill up your freezer with shad while they are easily found.  We launched out of Eisenhower State Park headed straight across the lake to the wind blown point, North Wind on Sunday the 11th. The are stacked in shallow water and you will have your choice of sm, med,lg, and extra large.  I am not kidding, it's like a grocery store for shad.  Came across them while bow fishing big Buffalo and monster gar that where along the bank.
Ended up with 8 gallon bags of shad to keep the jugs busy this winter.
We have found that the red meat from the Grass Carps is some of the best Blue Cat bait.  

Good luck!

I am reading old issues of Bassmaster, turning into a bass fisherman / panfish, I caught several in the coves and around Burns R, best lure today was a Z Man 2.5 dark smoke with green belly ( Ned style ). Lots of shad around BR, If they die off maybe the stripers will get hungry. Glad you are well Mr. Ax.

I made a list of things I used when I came in, it was 1/8 of the tackle and equipment I took out. I have to unload my boat each time. I want to get down to one 3700, and 4 rods, canteen, snack bar, and a gun.

I take my left over shad, coat them in salt and lay on newspaper to dry. Then roll in cornmeal (to keep them from sticking) and freeze. They make great catfish bait for the winter and the cornmeal keeps them separate.

An old guide named Mudman (Richard Price) showed me how to save shad.
