    heres a few more, had an 11 pound flathead too. first 2 are the 11 pounder and the last one is my cousin with the 16lber. he had to have his pic online lol. the second night we caught that 11 pounder we had about 5 or 6 more good channel cat that got off the stringer. we left it in the current...bad idea lol

    looks to me like the limbs did a lot of bouncing on that day. man my mom wouldve beat my head in had i ever put catfish in her bathtub! i did however use their pool one year as a huge bait tank when they decided to not take care of it one year. :smile2:

    Donnie, I love it. I limb line. Jug line, and tight line. My favorite is to run the river and limb line. You have some nice ones there. I know you had a good time doing it too. :big_smile:

    Donnie don't you know you are never going to get a girl to stay the night if you are keeping the next nights supper in the tub.:smile2:



    PS. Nice catch looks like you found a spot to go back and toss the poles out.

    hey steve there was 3 of us each night, and each is allwed 8 lines. i believe we had around 18 out each night though. i think we set 9 up river from us and 9 downriver. we caught both flatheads up river is nice holes around 3.5 foot deep and most of the channels down river. had some nice bullheads that were broken off too, but that was our fault on faulty lines.

    well the way we set up limblines/banklines whatever you wanna call it is first we take around 2 foot of limbline string is what i call it. you can buy it at local wall mart or whatever, its white string with anywheres from 150lb breaking strenght up to around 500 i beleive. anyway we take about 2 foot of that, tie it to one end of bunjee cord or bunjee string i think its called, that elastic rope stuff you can buy an hardware stores is where i get mine. anyway after you tie one end to the bunjee cord you tie another piece of the bankline string, depending on how deep you want your bait. we usually make it another 2.5-3 foot. we tie on a small weight usually 1-1.5 ounces and we tie it where it cant slide down but is still around 8-10'' from the hook. the hook we use most often is 4/0 true turn hooks. they work great and hooked that 16lber just fine even with a 6'' gill on for bait. the point of the bunjee cord is so the fish does not have a solid pull, the bunjee gives much like a fishing rod therefore tiring the fish out, and giving the fish less chance of bending your hook or breaking your line. ill try to get some pics up on my day off of our setups. also you might wanna check your local regs. on your limblines and bait and whatnot. hope this helps :big_smile:

    oh and i forgot to mention, with the bunjee cords, it allows you to tie onto something solid and still have a good chance of still having the fish on because of the stretch of the cord. i always try to tie onto a tree limb or willow limb just gor the extra give, but not a must with the bunjee cords. just find an old log jam or rock pile and put on a nice gill and wait for the fish!
