    the nite started good got to my lil honey hole for cats about 930. had the first cat hooked by 945 on shrimp nothing spectacular but a nice 2 pounder. then i rigged up ole bessy my baitcaster with the bait clicker. i slabbed on a 4 inch gill and put her out there. by 1015 i had a nice run on the gill i let the ole cat play for awhile and when it finally sang i set the hook but i came up empty handed. the gill was still twitchin so i put him back out there and as soon as the bait hit the bottom it ran for about a 20 yard stretch then i set the hook and the fight was on from there. i finally landed this cat about 10 minutes later i thought she was gonna be atleast 12-15 lbs by the way she fought but a nice 9lber wasnt a bad way to start the night. then the thunder rolled i had one more nice run b4 i got rained out. wow i was amazed at how nice bait clickers work while cattin. i only wish i had known about them 3 nice cat poles ago that i gave up to the drink. anyway from now on when i am targeting big cats the clicker is the only way to go as far as im concerned.

  5. LOL

    I wondered if maybe that was it. I get up in that area every now and then and knew it was a place that I had not heard of and wondered if it was a bit of word play.;)
