    :big_smile: Just got home! And 50 goldfish are in the water! The river is on a slow clear rise and the water is cold so it's on. I'll know in the morning how it will work out.

    Well I pulled the lines this morning. I got a 34 lb flathead and 3 blues that were perfect fry size. I got the smoker going right now and the smoked catfish will be ready soon! I love it! 34lbflathead 12906010.jpg

    Thanks Guys, I wish we would had some more bait! And it was too cold for me to get in the water with a seine.LOL We going to put out the perch traps this week and see if we can get some bait for next weekend.

    nice kitties there bro, wish i could get back into the flatties but they have slowed down for the winter now. But i can always chase those big blues when its cold here in VA.

    go to petsmart and buy ur goldfish there. they have 2-3" goldies for cheaper than most bait shops.
    I have been having better luck on frozen shad this weekend. All my goldies but one were still kicking after 30 hrs.

    Thats good that your still catching flatheads. I think they are done here until around march or so. Also thats cool that you are allowed to use live bait on limb lines or trot line or jugs. Here in N.C. it has to be dead. Nice fish though.
