    Seems almost every year come mid December to January we have alot of rain and floodong conditions.... I know alot of you dont like this but the last two years i have caught some huge Cats in the flood zones.. When that water drops down to 2 or 3 feet I throw on the wadders and head out... This year im going to buy a rubber raft and a big basket to put them in this year... Never had a digital camera till this year so now i can take pics of the Monsters I pull up out of all the debree everywhere.... The biggest topped my old scale at over 50# and later died... Sucks when you cant revive them all..... But i am looking forward to it... just thought i would share that.. Oh and I turn all them lose in the river.. Cause when it drys up they all lay out there dead and i would rather catchem

    I sure will.. Aint nothing like it.. exspecially when the ice in the area is 2 to 3 inches thick and you have to break thru it to get a big cat out.. The carp are pretty amazing too..
