John, there may be some one with me.:wink: But that fruit is bad luck.:smile2:
Ken, watch old john when it comes to extra friends he acts a little weird.:eek:oooh: Yes John I'll bring the 12 year old.

Nah, Its Good Karma. A little weird??? Nah, thats me all the time.:roll_eyes::0010:
It'll be nice to finally meet the 12 year old. I've heard a lot but never have met.:wink::smile2:
BTW,
We need to go back to that 1 spot and get that rope, that way If I decide to go noodling and get in trouble you can pull me back in.:eek:oooh::confused2::roll_eyes:
Since you're also an EMT, If I bring the needle and thread can you sew my fingers back on in case I grab something other than a catfish???:crazy::smile2:

Sat. Morning:big_smile: I have had a :crazy: week this week and it's time to go Kattin.
CABIN FEVER is about to get a hold of this old worn out hillbilly :confused2: I'm heading down the river this evening.
I took my grand son to the pond last evening BTW he is 2 today saw him reel in his 1st blue gill . Kids just love watching a bobber bounce . He's just getting to where I can understand what he's saying . but when he saw that bobber start to bounce it was no problem knowing he was enjoying his 1st fishing trip.

I was wondering if any of my fellow Ky Catters fish the Big Sandy? If so, do you have a problem catching as many turtles as cats? Also catch alot of hybrid and Ky bass. I love river fishing, You never know what might take the bait!!!
I haven't fish there, but I'll try it sometime with a fisahing buddy.

Just got home from an early morning trip to the Big Sandy:big_smile: Caught 2 channel cats 1- 3# 1- 4 1/2 # Hooked in to 1 more:big_smile: Well the big ones always get away. Saw him just before he went under that log, looked like he might have been 6 or 8 # but he was a flathead:wink::smile2: caught him on a 4or5 " bluegill. caught a sucker about 10" he's going to be cut bait for my next trip I figure.:0a23:Thought I'd forgotten how to catch fish, but I guess it is like riding a bicycle. Once ya learn ya never forget.

I think the rain we got has helped the fishing Paint Creek was murky to muddy and the river was almost clear, They were biting on the edge of clear and mud.

Did the channels go to your pond,skillet or back in the river ?
Just turned them back to the river. took the lazy way out. I just fish for the enjoyment of nature and being in the great outdoors, I don't remember ever having a bad fishing trip regardless of whether I caught a boat load or none at all I always enjoy it.:wink::smile2::big_smile:

I always have a good time too. ! We had the neighbors over for supper and had 19 bluegills 2 bass 1 catfish and that was half or more of my winter stash ! But it was a blessing for me I took there son fishing earlier this year . His first trip ever at 8 yrs old. Nothing beats baiting hooks and cleaning a few fish for my and other younguns' I bet it was one of little michaels highlights of the summer. Next weekend is at the father in laws pond I guess I can restock the freezer there ! I HOPE lol ! :big_smile:
