I've been on & around Big Sam since it was flooded in 1965 and I can't say that I've heard the name "Brickyards" before. It must be something ...more that is very local to a small group of people. Also it doesn't appear on any of the maps that I have.
Work shift work at local plant, so I fish more during the week than on weekends. Mainly fish the Black Forest area near camp. Trying to learn ...more more fishing techniques for crappie. But can't quite fishing for bass when out trying to crappie fish :)
