    went to one of my bass hot spots near burlington below a dam........caught 11 cats on lures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...........i have caught cats on lures and even the flyrod but never more than 1 here or there......and absolutly not 11!!!......only thing i can figure is that during the high water some cats came over the dam(its a low 1) or most likey alot came upstream and there were probaly hundreds there......anyway took my son back in the evening and using cutbait below floats caught over 30...with a few whites mixed in....no monsters but several were pushing 5 lbs......also another weird incident... i caught a 1.5 lb crappie on cutbait....!!!......mack

    The weirdness continues...

    I have caught two largemouth drifting on cut bait this past week. Prior to that I had only caught one all of last year.

    That is a great day of catfishing. Ton of em on lures and cut bait. Sounds like ya found a hole after a nice rain. Good luck on the water.

    When they want to eat they eat, they didn't learn in school to not eat other fishs food.
