    as said before, fishing for flats, use heavy line. for channels, i use around 12 - 17 is all. as for leader for channels. i use same line. put sliding sinker on, and pinch sinker to keep from going down to hook most of time. tie hook right onto end of line. never had problem with "leader" breaking off.

    a few questions here. you were sent a package of gear that some of us would give a eye tooth to get. are you using it? some of your questions seem like almost repeats. also, is that a picture of yourself? i'm planning on comming up to fish havasu sometime in future and want to know if i see you. you've stated you're only 16, but picture looks older. i know, i'm awful curious, but how i learn things. LOL
    sorry if i've upset anyone, but seems like lots of advise given here, and same type questions keep coming up all the time.

    my name is leroydozois and im 16. that picture is my father and that fish was the first catfish my dad has ever caught...and the onlyone :smile2::tounge_out:. the care package that was sent to me has not gotten here yet cause the shipping here in havasu is very very bad ( to send a letter to my neighbor it has to take a 2 day trip to laughlin and then back again.. i was in a (fishoff) at my high school and had to do with what i had :sad2:

    i do ask questions over again because im not sure on what to use ( of what i have ) *im srry if that bothers you* :0a33:

    GETHOOKED as stated i didnt get it yet but when i do im making sure i add it to my (current) tackle... and change my leaders to the kahlesand i bet i will have tons of questions about the surprises i await
    *** i prey it didnt get sent to a different house like last time ***:embarassed:

    makes sense now. just that picture didn't match what you were saying so i was wondering. didn't mean any offense. as for remarks of questions being asked over and over again, seems like you get same answers, but then go to different forum and try again. sorry, sometimes i get a little irritated when i answer someone, others answer and then see same question keep popping up from same person.

    I use heavy leaders so that whe the fish bites the light line doesn't keep the fish from having a chance to get away.

    That's a shame you did not get your frebiees. I would go out there to the other thunder street and politely ask about the package, you never know, they may have it there.

    good idea. go over and ask. if they claim no, call the post office and complain they are delivering your mail wrong and you've lost important things cause of it and want it. postmaster doesn't like to hear things like that.

    I will look again, I think I threw it away after I saw it was delivered. But I think I may have the original packaging slip. Stay tuned:eek:oooh:

    Any updates on this? Leroy did you have your dad check out the house on thunderhead drive? There is a house with the same exact address number on Thunderhead drive 3 blocks from your house. Maybe it got delivered there? I'm glad Matt didn't ship me Cleatus. :eek:oooh: Crazy stuff guys. Good luck tracking the package down.
