    Nice fish Jim, they should fit the smoker nicely:)

    You catch any of those on DK? Were they drift fish or anchored? Fishing was hard here yesterday and just trying to figure out what might be working. Thanks.

    Thanks For Sharing The Picks With Us! As Soon As The Weather Cooperates With My Schedule, I Am Going To Make An Attempt To Catch And Photograph At Least A Minimum Of A 10 Lber. I Hope. Thats How I Started Off Last Year. There Is Plenty Of Fish That Size At My Local Honey Hole. Now That I Have Said It, I Have Probably Stuck My Foot In My Mouth. Lol. Keep Posting Those Catches! Picture Sure Have A Way Of Making The Story Much More Real.

    Charlie, these were shore caught Cats. The wind was gusting up to 35+ so we decided to shore fish. Once the wind started dying down they just quit biting. We went back yesterday evening and it was fairly calm water all we caught was one. Yep, they're in the brine right now, they'll be smoking tomorrow, if it rains, if not, maybe the next day.

    Thanks Jim. I wonder if the wind might have been part of my problem yesterday..............there was vey little(zero at times) wind here yesterday. The fish will hit, but I think they need a little pick me up to get the feed sack on.

    Charlie, you're welcome. After tonight I don't know what to think. The wind blew real good, bout like the last time, gusting over 35. All we caught tonight were 5 "bait peckers" all under 2lbs(1.1,1.2 etc.) clipped and released them all. We were using the same bait, wind just as strong and from the same directilon. Had a lot of bites, missed a bunch, had a couple more on that got off, evidentally they were all dinks too, oh well, maybe next time.

    Nice fish Jim.
    We'll be at Milford this weekend and may give it a try.
    I just got two new Ugly Stik Tigers that really need a test.

    Jim, good to hear you'll be here. Please give me a holler and maybe we can meet on the lake or at your place or mine. Make sure you get some shad guts, that's all we've been having any luck with at all. Went out tonight, only caught six, but they were all over 3lbs, 4 Blues and 2 Channels. It was right after that storm passed through.

    Me and the "Quiver" went out again tonight, (been going out just about every evening) and caught another nice bunch of eater's, big one tonight was a 4+ ChannelCat, and a bunch of 2 to 3's. We'll be out again tomorrow evening. We were doing real good right after the storm passed and the wind was still blowing, once the wind died, they quit biting. We got 8 this evening, about par for the last two weeks. I'll try to remember to take a pic of the stringer the next time, I'll take a pic of them on "the table" tomorrow morning fore we clean'em.
    We've been shore fishing in the evenings. Most of them are caught on a home made dipbait or shad guts.

    Shucks Charlie, that means I got to bed about an hour before you went to work. I got up early though, about 9;30 this morning.:rolleyes:

    Eric, sorry I didn't get to read your post earlier, like last night;) There are quite a few good spots around the lake to shore fish. The main thing is to find a place you can get down to the water so the wind will be in your face. We've fished with the wind to our back a couple of times with little or no success. I've got a couple more pics I need to download from day before yesterday. Me and the Quiver (Jerald) have been having real good luck the past week with all this wind we've had. Next time you're heading for the lake, let me know a day or two ahead of time and I'll try to steer you to some spots.
