    Hey guy's,

    I was baiting my trot lines this morning with live gold fish. I baited one of the hooks and moved down the line about 3 feet when I heard a splash and suddenly my line started to tug. I went back to the hook and there was a little large mouth!

    I will be sending a pic later tonight.

    Also a few months ago I caught a Crappie on the same line near the stump but the turtles stripped every ounce of meat there was on him - just a fish head was left, at least it wasnt a turtle head..no pun intended! haahaa

    Well I am fishing for catfish, not bass. I have a 5/0 hook on a staging about 14 or so inches long. I hook the goldfish right in the eye and toss em back in the water.

    The bass was released.

    Thats weird huh, most people don't associate bass or crappie with a trot line but it happens.
