    Brad I haven't been out much this month other than Striper fishin. With the holidays and all I had to kick back for awhile. I got the boat running so I will be out as much as I can after Friday.

    The last cat I got was out towards Friendship a week or so ago and it was around #10. Water temps dropped to the mid-40's.

    Tims old shop, the bait shop, has no news on cats but they are now carrying gizzards that are in the 4' range. Brian also said he might bring in threadfins which will be nice during the kill off if ya don't wanna net any. They also have a monthly 3 fish species contest going on too,,,I may enter it some time for the fun of it.

    I'll get on them soon, if I do I'll post it up ; )

    Happy holidays,
    -Jim-

    I made it out 2 times this week but them fish whopped me. Threw gizzards, herring, and bream at them but I only got a few hits.

    I just went to the 12-mile area and I didn't go far from the ramp. There is a new hawk, a really big one over there now. He swooped up and good size fish in front of me...really cool sight.

    Hopefully before long I can get out there at night...you know how Hartwell is on daytime fishin ; (

    We went out yesterday and caught 20 slabs before dark. That was the first time I've been on the lake since this fall. We're going to Lake Marion this year from March 26-30th. Hopefully that'll be the start to good cattin season for us.
