Buddy "AL'' has all the luck! LOL! This man has caught some big fish over the years and Saturday morning he landed his PB on the Channel Catfish! Started fishing Friday morning at the Johnson Lake inlet and Brother-In-Law; Eric caught a nice 9.5# Channel on blood-bait. Myself, well I managed to get snagged in the rocks more than catching fish. Just my luck! HEH!:tounge_out: Anyhow, Saturday started off with a bang. We took the boat to Elwood Res. and things happened fast. I landed 7 cats, Eric caught 4 and Al started slow with only 1. I could see Al was getting bored, so I decided to make another drift where we had the best action. I decided to get close to some submerged timber with our drift and about that time Al's reel started screaming off line! I thought he got snagged up in the trees, but he said it was a fish!! Cool I thought! About 15 min later after the battle, we started seeing the fish. Holy crap what a fish. I was more excited than Al! Thank God we had a big landing net. Got the fish in the boat and weighed it. 25lbs and 40" long. "AL's" biggest!! Took some pics and Al said he was going to keep it and going to have a fish fry! Sounds good to me!! Anyhow, the rest of the fish were in the 3-7lb range. That seems to be the average weight of the fish were catching, but that 25lb'r was the hawg of the trip!! Check out Elwood and Johnson Lake on the Nebraska fishing thread for some pics!!http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1496948#post1496948 Thanks. Mark..
