    Smooth kip and i went out to the lake friday night to do a little fishing. We got there got set up sat there for a while and nothing. I was looking across the lake at the moon above the trees and i could sware i could see it moving. I looked over at kip and asked him if he could see it to and yes he saw it to. We sware it was competely above the trees and within two minutes it was below them where we could not see it anymore. It was very strange. As soon as it disapered I got my first cat on. It weigh in at 14 lbs. I threw back out and within a few minutes i had a second on got it in it came to 14 and a half lbs my personal best channel out of a lake. We had a good night at least I did. Kip again nata. He had a reel nice one on and lost it when it roled on the surface. Becides that a good nite. Hear are a few pics from the nite.

    Nice 'un, Chris!! Yes, the moon does have a habit of rising and setting. :wink: I always have my best luck just before it comes up over the trees, or right after it sets behind the trees.
