    Still haven't had any luck this summer in the Longmont area. Going to try Big Thompson Ponds near Loveland this weekend - I'll let you know. I did have some good luck last weekend at my old stomping grounds, John Martin Reservoir near Las Animas. My friend and I caught seven channel cat totaling 46 pounds. The top two were 11# and 10#. Had a couple of bigger ones get off (One straightened out a 3/O hook!). Used cut shad and drifted in 6-9 ft of water. Started catching around 830 PM. Stopped fishing around Midnight when the wind died. Probably could have caught more.

    Were you fishing the reservoir itself or the spillway? I assume the res. That's some good catfishing for sure!!! I like the spillway but then I don't have a boat. My biggest so far from there is a 15# blue.
