went out today fishin for channels. me and a buddy wound up with 33. i only caught 12 of them but my fish were much larger than his. haha. of the 12 i caught, 8 of them were 4 to 8.5 #'s. i had a 7.5,8 and 8.5 the rest were in between. i have had a pretty awesome 2006 so far! ive caught 43 cats so far this year! 2 flats and 41 channels and fishing hasnt even got good yet! looking forward to what is starting out to be the best cat year ever!
