Went to G'ville yesterday evening and night and saw something I've never seen before in my life. Around 30 minutes after dark we moved in to fish the shoreline and the water was covered in willow flies. There were big fish hitting all over the place and we thought they might be bass or stripe - they were big fish! Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I turneed on my spot-light and about fell out of the boat!!! What we were hearing was catfish - TONS of them eating willow flies off the surface! They were everywhere.

BTW - the bass fishing was SLOW! We ended up catching 5 witht the largest being ~3.5#.
