Myself and my Dad set some jugs in four local farm ponds. In hopes of catching some snapping turtles. We used cut gizzard shad for bait. We set four jugs in the first pond, two jugs in the second pond, two jugs in the third pond, and four jugs in the fourth pond. We caught a 14 inch Largemouth Bass in the first pond, as well as a 33 inch 15 pound Channel Catfish. I found it odd that the catfish was so long but didnt carry much weight. I do believe that if this same catfish had grown up in a river or reservoir system that it would have weighed substantially more when measuring 33 inches. I caught this exact same catfish on a white twister tail jig in 2002 and it measured 29 inches and weighed 13 pounds. Just like three years ago this catfish was released unharmed and in good condition. We didnt catch anything in the second pond or the third Pond. In the fourth pond we caught a 29 inch 8 pound Channel Catfish. Again the same thought process comes into play with the length and lighter weight. Dad and I also managed to take 8 nice Frogs from one of the farm ponds (not on jugs lol). It was definitely an awesome time being out with dad, good times indeed. Later that night I went over to one of the farm ponds and tried my hand at top-water Bass Fishing with a jitterbug but I didnt have any takers.
