    My girlfriend jen and i went out to the lake steve and i call DLG lake, we have been stocking this pond for years. I know that some of the guys on this site fish it for bass. We got out there around 2:30, it was good day we quite fishing at 10. Jen caught a 22, 6, and 4 pound flatheads. the 22 was her 2nd flathead ever and first over 20 pounds, I caught a 9, 2 12's, 15, and 20 pound flatheads. Then the surprise of the night i caught a 25 pound bluecat. The largest bluecat steve and i put in there was 11 pounds and that was almost 4 years ago. Its good to see the populations is doing well. The funny thing is the lake is known for its bass and bluegill we didnt see either lol. Most of the fish came off of a point of a beaver dam. heres the pics[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I think the Bass and Buegill that were in the pond are now in the bellies of those cats! :D

    The head on that 25lber looks like the fish could/should be a heavier, or is it just me?

    The Blues and Flatheads should be getting close to putting on the fall feed bags don't ya think?
     
  6. wow - that looks like one heck of an outing, congrats on all the nice cats -

    not as cool a story of letting a 10 grow to a 25, but last year I caught a very distinctive looking blue channel cat from a creek where I get my bait - the channel was about 2lbs, I had let this very same fish go from my aquarium two years earlier because he had been eating all my other fish! When I originally released him he was probably 1/8th of a pound. So I let him him go again - I'd be really happy if the next time I catch him he grows to 25 like the one you just caught again!
     
  7. dude, you have way too many cats in that pond. those guys are starving to death!
