    Since we had some decent weather on Friday and into Saturday I decided to make some phone calls and have a "Men Only" camping trip (Stepson and I, brother and his boy and nephew and his son) out at the family cabin on a drainage ditch that ran the border of my grandparents farm. The rod and reel fishing was somewhat slow so I decided to put out some of the "noodle jugs" that someone graciously posted on the BOC. I put out 9 jugs and the pic shows the results. 7 channels and the total weight was 53 lbs. I did have 1 jug that had a barrel swivel snapped in 2. But all in all, an awesome trip that the boys (I included) will not soon forget. The kids thought it was amazing how much fun they could have by just being outside and running around with no electricity!

    P.S. - Sorry about the picture quality - Cell phone.

    Thanks! I was using fresh shad about 4 - 5 inches long and I cut the tail sections off.
