    We went camping this weekend I went out a couple of times for a few hours. BUT..... I only caught 1 channel. I threw everything at them shad sides, dead bluegills, crawlers, and chicken livers. All I can say is at least I didn't get skunked. YEAH
    Hope others did better than I did.

    Has anyone used beef spleen? I think it works as good if not better then liver! It is full of blood and will stay on your hook the hole time you use it.:wink:

    Beef Spleen? Hum. Sounds like a good option to try sometime!! Thanks for the info.

    Anyhow, over the Memorial Weekend, my cousin from Iowa and myself boated some nice cats while drifting blood on Elwood Res. I caught around 6 cats and probably lost 10 hooksets. I'm really thinking this is due to my heavy, stiff action rod and the use of braided line. Mistake I'm guessing! My cousin landed a nice #7 cat and a 4.5 lb to. These are the 1st catfish my cuz ever caught. He was excited!! He really liked the tussle on the line. Being used to catching Crappie and Bass, he liked the way catfish fought and appreciated the challenge of landing the bigger cat. COOL!! He wants to try a crack at it another time. Sure!! I said. I'll be your guide again. LOL!! A freind of mine had great success at Elwood to, catching 10 cats, with the big one weighing #17. That was on Sunday afternoon. Guess I was in the wrong spot all the time. LMAO! Oh well!! This weekend I'll give it a shot..

    Thanks.
    Mark..

    ps.. gathering is getting closer!!
