    My back has finally straightened out enough to get out for a few hours. We are going to a private lake thats stocked with trout and channel cats. No, not a pay pond, I promise.:wink::smile2:
    I'm also gonna take a cat pole to try for some eater channels also.
    Wish us luck, I'll need it!!!:wink::big_smile:

    I'll give a report when we get back in so stay tuned!!!:wink::big_smile:

    Also this will be my first Trout fishing outing since I was a kid...Hope I can catch at least a couple!!! LOL!

    My grandfather had 2 ponds on his property, one was full of rainbows and german browns and the other had channel cats.

    John --

    As a bit of friendly advice, I'd recommend 6# test or lighter for your trout leaders. I'm still pretty much a beginner, so I use 6# so that I don't' have to be so careful with the drag.

    Good luck.

    Hey guys thanks for the luck! Im an old pro at trout fishing,we use 8 lb line and 1/64 ounce jig tipped with a mill or wax worm on a special float. We also use the Berkley trout dough bait it works well. But I prefer the jigs because you can put them back with those if you want. I also tie a #12 trebel on my jig for a stinger to hold on to the big ones. These are supposed to be real nice trout they put in this time so we will need the net and the stinger hooks hopefully. Ive never been out there that I didnt limit out.:wink::big_smile: They will be pics tomorrow afternoon for sure.

    John,
    Good luck today. I hope you catch a bunch of trout and cats. If you do, post some pictures for our enjoyment. I have never saw a live trout, so a good picture of one of them would be cool. Good luck, rspd507
