    Another weekend and I'm fishing at Johnson Lake inlet here in Nebraska. Friday morning and I caught my first catfsh of the season. Caught one a nightcrawler that was really small. Around 6". LOL! Bait? Few minutes later, using Shad gizzards on another rod, my pole bent and a 3lb. Channel was on it's way to the bank. Cool!!! This morning I ventured out in the rainy, crappy conditions and caught one more channel on the Shad gizzards. This time it was a 4lber.. Sorry, I apologize for not having any pics of them, left the camera at home. Just my luck!!:confused2: Anyhow, I'm hoping it's going to be a great year of catfishing. Usually I don't catch much cats this early in the year, but then again I usually don't fish for them this early either.
