    Just got home. It was a hell of night. We caught 2 in the first hour. 3lb flat n 2lb channel. Husband knocked one of my poles into the water. So I am now one pole short . :angry:Decided it was time to move. Anchored a little farther down n caught 7 more. Kept the flat n a 6 n 5lb channel. Got a total of 9 for night. Husband got a good bite n pulled his pole into the water. I'm thinking Karma, gotta love it. :wink:He managed to snag it with his other pole and got it back! What the hell, let's mine go n gets his back. Doesn't seem quite fair :eek:oooh: Even though I lost a pole it was an awsome night. Thanks to KC Jayhawk 78 for the info.

    I found the other pole you left at my house. It was in the enclosed trailer. I will send it home with Dillon. When you lose it in the water I will send another one to you :smile2:.

    Went out again last night. Hubby got a 7lb channel. I got a 1/2lb channel. Why do the fish hate me:sad2:? That is the only fish I've gotten in 4 trips. I figure I'm due for a big one soon. Going to make a trip to the Kaw since it's rained. Maybe I will be a keeper. (keeping fingers crossed):wink:

    Was out at Leavenworth the other day. One feeder (out of about 8) sat higher in the water than all the others. All the others sat the same height out of the water. Get some liver, find the feeder and you'll probably get some fish.

    I have bee catching 2 - 4lb catfish on a premade doughball from Walmart. Shrimp and Chicken Liver. The catfish love it and we have lost 2 poles in the water. We got up and walked to the truck and came back to see the pole going in the water. THIS IS FUN!!!

    The fish are very agressive after the spawn. Sounds like your doing excellent.

    It sure is fun getting a pole snatched in!!!!!Had it happen last week at pierson trying to catch some bait.I was like Holy Shhh!!!!Luckily it was sinking slow so and I had a bobber on it.I used my catfishing pole to snag it and get it back.It was only a 2 lb channel.
