    yesterday morning I walked the shore fishing for bass(no catfish bait) and caught a small one and chunked him up for bait. Since the property is on the lake I decided to cast out the pole and leave it all day to see what we get I checked it twice with no action in 7 hours and went out at around 9 to find a small channel about 2pounds on the line. Well today i decided to try it again this time with a piece of kielbasa on the hook checked it at 7 and there was a catfish as I was cleaning the catfish on the dock I decided to cast the pole back out and wound up catchin one more before I finished but I spared him his life since I had already cleaned up every thing. All were small but hey I aint complainin LOL

    Sweet. I never tried any polish sausage before. Might have to give it a whirl sometime if I have any leftover. I think there is a little anise in kielbasa.

    Excellent. Might I suggest the Bacon and/or Garlic Spam. Fits in your pack....always a quick cat bait on hand. In a pinch you can feed them and you too!!!

    sounds like fun, if they are biting like that you should stick around the rod more, you might be surprised
