    The bite on Wylie picked up this week. I really only fished one hard day, but the numbers and size were good. We fished a tournament on Friday night and came in second losing by one ounce with 18 pounds 9 oz for a three fish limit.

    The tournament started at 8:00pm and we had all of our keepers by midnight. We threw back probably 10-12 channels that were in the 5 1/2 pound range while in search of the 7-8 pound kicker we knew we needed. That fish never came. We went to scales with three fish that were all right around six pounds.

    Overall we caught 25 cats, all in the 4-6 pound range. The bite was really dead though from around 1:00am-6:00am. The door slammed shut!!!

    The water has remained in the mid 80's on the lower lake and the nights are moonless. It seems as though we are back into the cycle of a good early morning bite and a good evening bite from dark til around midnight.

    25 cats is a great trip!!!! You'll probably get into the bigger ones as the weather cools off.
