    Doing great! Couple weeks ago went to Banner and caught several cats off of liver. Biggest one that I caught was 14 lbs. I need to meet up with you sometime and you show me how to catch big cats like the one in your profile pic. Hope that everything is going well for you.

    I've heard liver works well out there, but I have never caught anything on liver. Maybe just a bad day for me. I know there are some hogs in there, just cant seem to get them to bite my hook.

    I fished Shawnee from 8:30pm until a little after 9pm tonight and finally caught my first flathead. Shrimp was the bait used. There's a little room for improvement for my next flathead since the fish only weighed about 8oz :smile2: It was CPR'd. :wink:

    I love lake shawnee. I fish it every other weekend. Biggest fish last year outa there was a 45 pound flatty. As far as bait, Ive hammered channels on live minnows under floats, dead minnows on bottom and recently at the dock bait store I got some of that catsnot blood dipbait and caught 80 channels last week 2-10lbs. Look for the flathead hunter sticker on back of my white colorado truck. See ya:wink:

    Oh and at shawnee it seems to be more about location than bait. Just my two cents.
