    What I want to know is that when we go cat fishing all you can catch is little ones! But buddy glad to see you get that one in. Hope it can run over to cat fishing the next time we go. I think this was a good way to spend your last night in south Mo before you move back home. Cant wait to get you home:smile2:.

    Nice buglemouth! Where at on Taneycomo did you catch him? Years ago my dad caught a 20 pound carp while we were staying at Lazy Valley Resort.

    I told you guys that when Adam and I go fishing all we catch is the little ones. The wife and I went on saturday morning and I cought some small ones and one 6 pounder and one 13 pounder. I never do that with Adam:big_smile:.

    Adam congrats on a nice fish our of some real cold water. Taneycomo. When you catch a big fish on light tackle you gain the name of true sportsman. Good job.
