I went squirrel/rabbit hunting today and while I was coming back from my hunt, my buddy put on a rabbit liver from one he'd shot and threw it in his pond. I ended up catching the fish, a 4 lb. catfish. The pond had ice on it this morning, but the temperature got up to around 60 today. The pole had been in the water for about an hour before the fish bit. You can throw across the pond, so you can imagine how lethargic the fish were today. God bless.
