    I have heard of many big fish comming out of there but I cant seem to find one that has come out of there over 80 lbs. I would like to see if anybody could find that. I have looked forever. Tons of 79 and 80 pounders but none over 80. Good luck let me know if you find one.

    Keith, if you can't find it get a hold of me and I'll draw you a map :p

    I see you figured out how to get your picture back up, that's really to bad :cool:

    Whats really scary is I'm starting to understand your sense of humor.........I better have a cold one and think on that a bit.

    Rivers up and got a little debis, but doubt it will stay up long(the river).

    Mcflat and myself took 14 eater's off of Clinton today. Some on a trotline with little shad for bait(lakes full of em) and some on dipbait over chum. Chum bite was slow. Let the freezer filling begin, I broke out the soap :rock-big:

    Charlie,
    Sounds good on the eatters. Bryan and I hit Atchison state lake a few night back. We caught a bunch of 2-4lbers. We were going to keep some to fillet but I was too tired that night. Went back the next day and caught one too small to keep. :sad: Go figure! LOL We are going to try again soon. I'm going to try focusing some energy on the lakes around to find some flatheads for the freezer. I haven't eatten any flats in forever!

    Only had 2 fish on the trotline, but did finish out the limit over the chum. Tragically, I had 3 that went over 4lb..........you know I hate cleaning "big" fish,hehe. Because I can, I switched one pole over to a circlehook and went 6 for 6 on that rod. I missed one fish but it was just a tap-tap hit and probably wasn't big enough to get the bait in it's mouth. Didn't rebait the trotline but still plan on catching my limit in the morning..........maybe I won't get wet tomorrow.

    Enjoyed the heck(must be careful) out of our trip Mike, next time we'll get serious with some big steel and bigger baits!!

    Charlie,
    I tried to respond to that message we had going on the arcade but the system only allows one message every 3600 seconds. :cursing: :cursing: :cursing:

    The first time I only played once. I didn't relize you could keep going. The 2nd time I played atleast a dozen times. LOL I wouldn't have put that 92 up if I would have known that.

    HEy, i went to Clinton in the middle of this summer and fishing was excellent. I had 90 keepers in 3 days using soy beans and Sonnys dip bait. We fished about 3 hours a day and ended up with 90 not counting the ones we threw back.

    At least you were within 20 of your daily creel limit if they were channels?

    30/10=3. I'm going with 3 fisherman. Chumming is a dang good way to get some fish in the freezer, it also keeps my 9 year old from whining about no bites :D
