Big Blue Cats are tearing it up if those d--n bass fishers will quit riding through your fishing gear at full blast. I hope the next time one of you do that your motor gets locked up with my noodles. I think their mad because they fish all day and catch nothing but a sore arm while we are stocking the freezer with yummy blue cats-best eating fish ever. We fished 3/27/14 for 4 hours and caught several 30-40 pounders.

This summer, I put all of my rods out with hotdog slices and a sinker at dinner time. I caught five cats around 6 o\'clock. That is the time for catfishing.

Hyco is a great bass producing lake if you just learn to fish it right. That\'s all there is to it. Check out the Piedmont Bass Classics~CBS Quality Cars Hyco Lake Open results from March 9th, 2013. There\'s nothing wrong with this lake. Keep practicing and you will catch them!

I haven\'t fished this month, but all these comments about no big bass left in the lake are completely off. Either you\'re fishing in the wrong areas, or you\'re not fishing the right baits. There was days this summer where in an hour we boated 40+ schooling fish. Over this summer alone, my fishing partners and i caught 4 fish in the 8+ lb range with all fish over 24 inches long, with the biggest being 25.5. We also caught around 10 fish in the 5+ lb range. We caught them in all parts of the lake also. I will say with the water being so clear in the north end of the lake you must use fluorocarbon with long casts, in the south end braided line and pitching is fine because the water is much darker. Our biggest fish were also caught on spooks, square bills, deep cranks, and shakey head worms, with the other nice bass being caught on every bait I have in my tackle box. So obviously people aren\'t fishing correctly or don\'t understand how to pattern the bass on this lake. I\'m obviously not going to say exactly where I caught most of the fish but they\'re definitely there. Someone also made a comment about the lack of crappie, but I caught limits of crappie under our dock every day this spring. If you guys think the lake sucks and don\'t want to fish it fine, means less boats for us to contend with, but I honestly find it hard to believe you guys can\'t catch keeper fish.

Not so much a bass report but more so a chain pickerel report. I fished 2 days for bass with no luck. I did catch several chain pickerel. I used weightless senkos and top water poppers. Very exciting top water action working the outside edge of the mats. I caught a 2 pounder that came out of the water about 2 feet like a missile on the initial strike. Another one ate my senko and dove straight down until my 12 pound test line snapped.... Good luck folks!!! Catch one for me...
