Don't make fun of her belly

Discussion in 'Catfish Discussion' started by M.Magis, Jul 24, 2005.

  1. Action wasn't too fast last night, but it wasn't a total loss. This one just couldn't pass up a free meal, and it doesn't look like she often does. ;) Excuse the picture quality. I just realized my camera has Self Timer and this was my first time using it.
    BTW, is there a such thing as a Fish Ohio "backstroker"? I think I caught one last night. :rolleyes: [​IMG]
  2. Nice one. Can you give bait, conditions, general location?

    I didn't get out yesterday, waiting on a guy to look at my boat for sale, never showed. Disn't go out this morning, planning to call said guy to see if he's really interested.

  3. Bait: lively goldfish
    Conditions: clear, bright moon
    General location: SE Ohio

    That's a nice fat one. Always hard getting used to the timer, to get into the pose right. Don't forget the flash when you have alot of backlight. Even in the day sometimes I was using my flash to fill in the shadows. SE Ohio....... :D

    katfish Cats are where it's at!


    Hang in there!!

    Your best cameraman/netter will soon be back in action :D

    Looks to me like that fish is taking advantage of the concentrated baitfish that have no place to hide :D

    I hope they don't find hunting so easy that they completely ignore our baits ;)

    With the water this hot any flathead is a good flathead.

    katfish Cats are where it's at!

    What you talkin about? I am on solid foods now! :D

    Watch it Mike---I just discovered a bag of shad and some minnows in my boat that were well past their prime :rolleyes:

    I got 3 truckloads of block I need hauled to the lakes :D

    Seevers you are gonna have to wait your turn ;)
    I think Shortdrift is overdue
  9. With all this darn hot weather, Shortdrift is just about overdone. :( Bout time to feel the pull of a flathead :B rather than the tug of a walleye.:eek:

    no more of those gerber strained peas for you huh :D

    i think you're right about shortdrift.since he's had no other way of spending his nights,he's resorted to moonlight walleye trolling ;)
  11. You flatter me. :D She weighed an even 26 lbs. Had a 27.25" girth. I think I've caught 40 lb. fish with the same girth. You guys missed a beautiful evening on the water. Perfect temerature and the only ripples on the water were from the shad and carp.
    Rick, if you get a suspicious package in the mail, I suggest you open it outside. :D ;)

    a friend said moon light fishing for cats is the worst time

    JUSTCRAZY Wurlds Wurst Spellor

    Eagleclaw, as you can see, any time the cats are biting is a good time to be fishing. You just never know.

    Damn Mike sure wish I could have been there, but the trip to Cinci was not too bad for a weekend away from fishing. But now it is time to get back to fishing mode. I am going to start early with a bait search and then decide what lake to haunt this time.
    I'm glad to see that the year is finally starting to turn on for you. Hopefully this weekend we can finally land some monster size kittens.

    By the way how did she fight. Was she to fat to move or was she another one that didn't realize her lack of size??

  16. She put forth a good effort considering her size. It was on a Medium action rod, so that made it a bit more fun.
