Just wanted to let everyone know that if you haven't fished for cat on Lake Palestine, you are really missing out. Went out Saturday 05/03/08 and every where I went the wind had the lake kicking up pretty hard. I was gonna fish for hybrid-stripers and whites but got tired of fighting the trolling motor so I put in at Saline Bay and decided to put out the anchors and sit to see if the wind died down. Tried Danny Kings for the first time ( I prefer Hog Wild ) and from about 8:30 a.m. until about 10:00 a.m. I landed 19 channel, all keepers. I normally fish farther north around Pine Cove but wanted to try a new spot. I had three bites that snapped 17# Big Game so I may have had a big fish, I don't know. I never have fished foe blues but have seen some really huge fish brought in from trot-lines. i prefer to use a rod and reel, and have a pond full of bream and two boys who like to catch them. Any advice on how to use them as bait and how to rig them on a rod and reel would be appreciated.
