7.28.2018 - Catching Kittens.

Jul Sat 28, 2018 8:10 am

Not a ton to report. Just a "wake up" to this thread and a funny pic.

Went to Lake A with the wonderful Phil for a late catfish outing. Everyone we encountered said they were catching nothing but cats on anything they were throwing. I ended up with 2 little ones and Phil with 3, including a little yellow booger lookin thing. We ended up doubling up on cats. I was using a ML setup, so regardless of size they were fun to fight.

Thought I'd share this pic of our double up. Phil's was a nice sized fish with a GUT. Mine was barely bigger than a pickle :lol:

I went there a couple weeks ago and was thoroughly skunked.

We were throwing reaction baits the whole time out too. I got one good but apparently non-committal bite. I was telling Phil my PB bass in that lake is no more than 5". Seems to just be a catfish/carp factory.

I hope you didn't get skunked doing a whole lap of the place. That's a huge lake to trek carrying a skunk around.

I went from the parking lot to the clearing on the south bank, so quite a bit, but far from a whole lap.
