Sam was off Monday and I couldn't take off but I felt really bad yesterday and took off work:wink:. Me, a guy at work Sam has dubbed Sir Charles and my uncle Lonnie hit Kerr lake and had a blast. It was a beautiful day that started out in the upper 20's but warmed into the 50's. The water temp was 44 degrees and the bite was on. We caught a bunch of eaters but also boated several 10 to 15, a couple 18 and 19 and I caught one that went 31.96 lbs. My uncle had one on that we never got a look at that he couldn't get up. He got it up high enough for it to burp and about the time the bubbles cleared it done a nose dive and broke his line:crazy:. Bait used was fresh caught cut shad. Another boat from our pole bender club was also out fishing and they caught one that weighed 29.5 and caught close to 50 fish total. To many pics to post so I made a slide show to make it easier to view.

man oh man you lucky dog wish i was there what kind of rods you boys using



Corey, we use meat hunter rods, They are some tough rods for a good price.



We turned this little one back to, his back was twisted up so bad he would have been impossible to fillet.





You can tell I was looking and feeling a little better about 11:00 :wink::smile2:

Thanks for the pics Johnny, looks like a great day of catting. Congrats. That twisted fish is strange, maybe he got bit by a big one when he was smaller or sucked through a turbine but not killed??

Dang it Johnny! Holding out on me again! Where was them bigguns last weekend that I was there?:angry:

Looks like you had a great day on the water again!:big_smile:

Now if you want a challenge, meet me here in Oklahoma City and prove to me that there is even catfish in these city lakes (Or Thunderbird for that matter).:confused2: I haven't had a nibble, not even one little nibble. I even put a perch trap out full of dogfood and left it overnight and NOTHING!!!!!??????

I need intervention here!:smile2:
