Thank you Gorden. Those are some nice catches. I have fished many years for catfish in lake conroe, North of Houston. I live in Mena AR now and really want to find a good place for crappie close by. I won't turn down catching catfish though. I'll probably have a line or two out while crappie fishing. Looks like DeGray lake is about 2 hours, so I might have to give it a try.
Try lake hinkle in Waldron about 20 miles north of you I am doing real good right now they are about 30 foot deep
