Sounds like you had a good trip. What kind of fish were you catching over there? Blues, flathead? I went fishing over the weekend too, but I was using my fingers for bait (noodling). I had never caught one like this before, and let me tell you it was a blast. There is nothing quite like reaching into a likely spot and feeling a fish there in the water just doing its thing. They were surprisingly calm and just let me fumble around until I got my hands on them. It was also neat to see how these fish spawn...they apparently find a spot out of the main current (usually an undercut or in a piece of debris), lay their eggs, and sit and fan them until they hatch. In all the holes with fish there was a big pile of eggs there as well. That was a side of things that I had never seen in the wild, and was neat to experience.

Sounds sucessful Buckshot. I put worms and crickets on a hook for my daughter the other day for about 30 minutes fishing at the creek.. She got a few nibbles but didnt hook anything..

Flex you are going to have to go to the national noodling contest now.. (they call it something like that) Ive seen those TV's shows about it and those dudes are some noodling pros.. Ive never done it but I would have to say its would be kinda heart pumping sticking your hand in hole under the water hoping you find a fish thats nice to you..

Catching mostly Channel cats, The biggest was a Blue and we did have one flathead.

You can have the noodleing I have seen the big alligator snapping turtles that are in the water around here. Nope I'll keep my hands where I can see them.

channel cats are lots of fun and great eating we dont get blues or flats up here as for noodling the size of the snapping turtles i've seen are no joke no way im doing that

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I usually go a few times for channel cats in the summer. I also enjoy the challenge of gar, I disagree with what most say about them being trash fish.

Got to renew my fishing license which expired at the beginning of this month

Who all catches their bait with a cast net?
