    Ive been runnin lines now for about 3 weeks, in between fishing the lakes on the weekends... Ran one wk on the smoky outside of salina, the other on the solomon... We had three small flats, and majority were channels, but we were only baitn perch every now and then most of them were for channels... WEnt and caught a bunch of perch around 60 last night, and going to run them strictly now that the water temps gettin up there. we usually run lines at wakefield on milford on the weekend the closer it gets to the 4th of july... Ill start postn some pics of result... as for the cpr, we usualy cpr everything over 15, the rest are catch and release in butter....

    Glad to hear that someone is CPR'ing at Milford. CJ and I saw a bunch of jugs out there last time I was out there. I just hope others will start to release the big ones out there.

    Unfortunately a friend of mine who doesn't CPR has been getting into some nice Flats at ElDorado. Tuesday morning he came by with 7 fish off of 8 lines, 1-30+, 4-20+ and 2-10s. Over the weekend he pulled a 40+. I've been workn on him about CPR, but he is as old as dirt, and set in his ways.:sad2:

    WHY NOT????? i have only met a few fish that werent kickin to beat hell the next mornin... and usually the ones that dont make it were done in by turtles... as for the jugs on milford... they are all over north/south of the causeway, and clear up into the lake across from milford... bleach bottles, and even 20oz pop bottle painted orange... they were all over last weekend... We actually asked the warden out there about them and were told this, that they can be considered a set line as long as there is enough weight that they connot be mobile even with a fish attached... Which if youve ever jugged takes a bunch of weight to keep a decent fish from movin it... we checked a few out there prefishing... just to see if we knew the guys runnin them... and they deff did not have enough weight to keep them from even drifting....

    I have not set any lines on the Neosho because it is too high. But I have been trying some creeks and I have caught dozens of good eating size bull head. Cant wait to get out on the river.

    I even let the small ones go.I only keep my lines out about 11 hrs (sunset to sunrise)so I never seen any dead are beat up.There as lively as can be when I pull them out the water.Always perfect hook set in the corner of their mouth.If I find a dead fish on my line, I will never set another limb line in my life.
