I've caught them all the way up to Dexter. The sloughs are perfect habitat and we have a gazillion to chose from, drop shotting in the log jams - be still my heart, those red eyed powerhouses:shock::cool:.

Give me enough notice and I can hook you up-so to speak. Like you said so many fish, so little time. Tight lines
