The few days after 4th of july we went on a camping trip there. We were put in the over-flow. It was pretty dman flooded. We fished off the camp area that was half flooded straight ahead from the camp check in. My first cast was right in front of the trees straight oahead of me. 10 minutes I got a few nibbles then it took my pole all the way down (I had it on balanced ona home-made pole balancer). As soon a si pulled back to set the hook I felt the weight then BOOM fell straight on my butt. The fish or whatever it was broke my line. 15 lb test. I fished another 30 mins after I had re rigged my pole. Only a few nibbles after that. That was it. My gramps and my uncle fished the next ngiht before we left. Had a few take downs but wasn't paying attention and didn't hook them. They are biting though fairly well. Find a nice cove and cast about 5-10 feet out. We were using chicken liver. Good luck man.
