    My buddy Cliff picked me up at my dock around seven AM and we headed for Marker 5. Neither of us had fished this area for cats and decided to give it a go. We fished in 12 to 60 feet of water and caught cats in all depths. We had a mixture of bait consisting of crappie, blue gills and white perch, plus some small threadfin shad we used for white perch. Water temp was 82.6 degrees and wind was out of the South at 10 to 15 MPH. From the Island at Marker 5 we fished in a South to Southwest direction. We ended up with 20 some cats, mostly channels, several blues and one flathead. Also at the end of the trip we put somewhere around 35 to 45 white perch in the boat.The perch were in the back of a cove in 12 to 22 feet of water. Back home a little before eleven bells.

    The attached photo's are a little blurred but it depicts what happens to your hand when you hang up your catfish rig, then break the line. The fishing line flew back and hit my hand and cut it up a tad. I have shown this to remind all of you, when you hang up and are trying to break off, have your fishing partners or guest to turn their heads so the fishing line will not hit them in the eyes or face.

    WylieCat, I won all three bets, most, largest and overall. Not a bad outing.
