    Sorry this is a late report, but jus got computer back from shop. The withdrawls have been bad, missing the B.O.C. Went fishing Monday night. Had two carolina rigs and two Kat Bobbers. Guess which outfished the other? Thats right the Kat Bobber does it again. Caught a 11.3, 9.1 channels and a couple four pounders I jus tossed back, to lazy to walk around for pictures, lol. Missed two others bigger than the 11.3. So Kat Bobbers out fished the bottom rigs 4-0. All were caught on green perch and all were CPRd. Going again tonite hope top have a report. Its good to be back.

    Been fishing Tuttle Creek outlet where the water flow is down below 500cfs.
    Slow, steady action nothing above eight pounds, mostly 3 to 5 lb eaters.
    I haven't hooked into anything worthy of a picture yet, even if I could
    figger out this digital camera of Mary's. I'd like about a 12lber minimum.
    Wouldn't turn down several of those eaters in a row either. I got people
    to feed since my youngest son moved back in for a short while. His freinds
    drop by and we got a fish fry taking off. Mary can eat the salad, she has
    to be in the proper frame of mind to eat fish somehow.

    Sorry, Brent. Got to rambling and lost my way. Been using my Kat Bobber
    at Tuttle Creek Outlet. Barely any current, so a drift takes more than
    20min. I was thinking about those Carolina rigs that you were fishing.
    There is a little trick to keep your bait from hiding in the bottom trash
    that you might have heard of. Try putting a little float on the leader
    about 6in above the hook. You know those little round red and white
    one inch floats you might use for catching green sunfish? One of those
    or one of those Betts' floats that looks like a big pink or orange packing
    peanut with a yellow plastic peg through the middle. The little float will
    make it harder for the sunny to hide,yet keep him about a foot above
    the bottom. Should give the Carolina rig a fighting chance, hmmm?

    Went out Friday night only caught a couple four pounders. My buddy, I wont mention any names, lol, had a heck of a time around 3:00 am. He lost about a 10lbr earlier and this time his Kat Bobber went under and snapped his 30# test. About five seconds later His pole did the "now you see me, now you dont trick" It shot off like a missle. We were at a spot where you basically got to hold your rod, or I would highly suggest it. Anyways about an hour later I accidently snagged his rod and saved the night for him. It was his sons pole and he didnt know how he was gonna explain it to him. Heading out tonite again, waiting for the 20+ channel to come back, this time I got a camera. :smile2:

    Not real strong current, but they will work in slower current. I use em off to the side a bit of main current. Good luck.

    I fish them in heavy current at the dam here at Pickwick. But I'm casting them out and letting them drift my bait down. Get the down so far reel back in. Works great for me.
    Also if there's slack water near you cast out and allow them to stay in the slack water.

    i use em on the Kaw in the main current. it puts a bit of a bend on my rod tip but it dont bother me none cuz when a cat hits it'll bend it down more than the bobber. BTW, those in Lawrence & KC keep an eye out cuz there is a Kat bobber headin yer way :embarassed:
