    I am having a very lucky year:D This fish weighed exactly 40-lbs and I caught it on cut frozen shad.

    1 fish is luck. 1 trophy a month indicates more than luck.

    It seems the more you fish the better your catches are.

    That picture reminds me of the chiggers Misfit didn't know he had till I asked him:)

  9. Im glad to see the "Teacher" is still teaching Mellon how to do it.. I know a while back you were getting depressed over a lack of catching but it is paying off, Im headed out tonight, I hope to get lucky enough to get one over 10 lbs, a 40, Id have to retire my equipment after that...
    Nicely done guys!

  14. Congrats on that fine flathead!

    wess
     
  15. never caught a big cat like that.....how is the fight??
     
  16. I had the same thing happen at Alum, only from shore. I had a minnow about two feet down under a bobber, right next to shore. I pretty much forgot about it until the rod nearly went into the water. Luckily I had situated right so that a fish would have to take a full 5gal. bucket too. Ended up being a nice fat channel cat.
