    Took some buddies with me this weekend and last night. Bite was on, lots of runs. Last night we caught an eel early and I cut him up. Awesome awesome bait. They were hammering the cut eel, stays on the hook awesome, I caught 3 fish and had 2 other runs on the same piece of fresh eel.

    some pics, most just under 4 lbs, one was right at it, some other smaller guys too not pictured.

    they are native to the lake I'm fishing, we get them all the time when using crawlers... they hit pretty much anything, I've got them up to 4 feet. They are incredible bait, I cut them about an inch and half wide, stays on the hook awesome! they have a unique stench to them as well.

    I'm going to try and get some more to freeze... from now on I'll be keeping a pole with crawlers on it next to me. If I get a bunch I'll let you know and you can have some. :cool2:

    didn't get out too much this weekend, made a pretty sweet bait tank though

    got a couple channels right around 5 sat night

    got this one catching bait on a half inch piece of night crawler, 2lb test, size 12 hook with no barb, and a 5 foot pole... boy that was fun.

  16. Oh yeah, that does sound like fun bro.:tounge_out: Now what is really fun is in the summer time I wade about waist deep and cast out a light line with a night crawler or a small piece of liver on light line like that and reel in a catfish while you are wading at dusk.:wink: Now that is some fun!:tounge_out: Especially when they start going nuts racing around your legs!!!:eek:oooh: Yeah, I am a little crazy.:cool2:
