    went out last night and had a couple poles out..caught a couple druma dn a small channel, had a few good hits but no takes...
    most interesting part of the story is my new rod and reel still hasnt caught a fish and ive used it on 6 trips now...well sorta.. was fishing on bottom witha 3" live shad, had a couple bumps on the line and thena good thump so i sat the hook like a lumberjack...nothin there...let it soak a lil longer and reeled it int o check my bait...get it about 10 feet from the bank and realize i do have something on there...my 3" shad was gone and a 8" shad was hooked in the mouth with my 5/0 kahle....npow how does that happen lol...to make it even better i put it back on the hooka n chunked it out there..was getting ready to go and was reeling my line and and it felt weird like a sideways shad..that woulda made sense..thensomething nailed it and bout knocked the pole out of my hand but got no hook in it..continue reeling and and i had a ancient beer can hooked through the side..that woulda been weird enough but what beer battered fish hit it????? :smile2:

    our regular crew went back out and fished until 11:30 caught a 3 lb bass on my first cast and thena 8 inch bass on the second so we thought it was going to be a good night...no much action after that...caught 3 largemouth 3lb 3 1/2, and a 4 lb er 2 sand bass 2-2 1/2 lbs and had a line snapped like a twig before we coudl get the rod out of the holder. was only getting bites on minners, nothign touched the fresh live shad or mussels. caught the biggest bass as i was packing up the rods to go he hit about 25 feet from the bank and he hadnt evens tarted to fight and i had him at my feet lol. everybody was too tired from the night before so even though it seemd the bite was about to begin we still left early. probably go back wednesday or friday and try some bigger baits and maybe some stinkbait..still tryin to fill the freezer

    Hey Jeffro, don't get caught with the sandies on your hook for bait. They are considered a gamefish by TP&W and not legal to use for bait. I wish they weren't, cause the blues love em.

    You know guys, Even YELLOW BASS are not allowed as bait... and there is no limit on yellows but... they are excellent eating! We catch hundreds of them each fall and winter in the cypress river channel at Caddo Lake..
