    Girlfriends uncle caught a 30 lb and a 12 lb channel cat in Success lake this last week.

    fish were both caught on SPOONS yes I said spoonI forget the name of them but they are sometimes used for ice fishing you attach the line to the center of the spoon/jig they are silver . What he explained was that this time of year the shad start dying and he thinks this spoon looks like a dying shad they fish them a foot or so off the bottom.

    Took everything Shad , DK's, Liver, lures not a single bite, fishing off the bank doesn't get you out far enough into deeper water and thats where there at in the channels.

    I saw the good pictures of the fish caught and there huge, 2 of them went 20 pounds. No one that I could see was catching fish not even the boaters, then the DFG pulled up to us on the banks he was in a boat with regular clothes on luckily I wasn't fishing haven't gotten my license just the boys were fishing.

    There catching huge carp out there also on the lures even hopefully I'll get out with girlfriends uncle he knows how to fish that lake and where, he's a pro Bass fisherman was fishing a tournament at Millerton this weekend so he wasn't available to take us out.

    So thats it fellers its was a nice day out though all and all the boys had fun.
