    I was out there again last night, and got a 23 inch on the first cast. Didn't even have time to get the second line in the water. Caught a snapping tutrle, then sat there for about 4 hours before I got a hog. About 11:00, I got a huge fish on the line. It scared the hell out of me, sitting there in the pitch black, and then splash! It was on!
     
  4. nice cats usually do pretty good down there...usually goto atwoods east side off of glendale rd by the bridge, go to wait for them sometimes but its worth the wait

    Chicken liver, on a size 5 circle hook.

    Yeah, we caught 6 little bull heads, but the couple of biggies were worth it!

    Thanks! Here's a couple more pics of my biggest cat I got tonight 7/26

    It bit my circle hook with chicken liver around 9:30P.

    I lost one to a line snap that seemed every bit as big (or bigger) than this one.

    I get up to the rocks, and make a left, then walk down the stream to the end of the field. There's a path through the brush. I follow it about another hundred feet. There's a clearing on the right. When you get to the bank, there's a small path with about 4 good clearings and hardly no snags at all.

    Long time no post... Still fishing the spillway at bolivar.

    Scope my buddy's girlfriend and this fine catfish she caught tonight... She caught another one a couple pounds shy of this one also.

    PS: There's something to be said about a girl who will put chicken liver on her own hook! :^)
