    I decided to go fishing last night and called up bigheck for some Osage night fishing. When we got out there the bites were alittle slow and we landed a few wipers. Around 10:00pm my wife landed a 13 pound channel which is the biggest fish ever for her. About 30 mins later I landed a 13 pound channel. Both fish were 30 inches and came in at 13 pounds. I have a few pics I am going to put up but the fish I caught is on my avatar.

    Ok I also have to say that I will not go fishing without bigheck because he is insane. Erik jumped in the lake to help me land the 13 pound cat.

    good work y'all !! yeah Shawn, its always good to have a good net man. Lucky & me have been fishin together for so long that when a fish is on we somehow know what the other is gonna do which really helped when we both hooked on to our pb flattys on the Kaw last year

    Sounds like you all had a great time. You have one heck of a net man if he is jumping in the lake to net your fish. Congrats to your wife on her new pb channel.

    We had a blast bringing them in. I was using 17lb test with 4/0 circle hooks. Both were pulling drag big time. bigheck jumped in with shoes and socks on and grabbed the fish. the spot we were in had some big rocks out in front of us and erik didnt want the fish to get snagged or break the line. We are in our first year fishing together and so far we have landed 19lb, 2 13lb, 5lb, 3lb. hey thorr maybe sometime in the future you can come down and land a few with us.

    My wife hated catfishing until she put up a good fight with the 13lb. I used a rapala digital scale to get the weight.

    Well I won a homerun derby in slowpitch softball and got a free 30 pack of Bud light and me and erik was slowly killing them. The only problem is when I go to take a drink I get a bite and it takes me about 3 mins to get back to my beer.:smile2:

    we just tried off a couple of piers. one off of loop 5 on the north part of the lake then we tried a pier pretty close to the dock. it was cold as **** when we went so i think thats why we didn't catch anything. plus i was pretty unprepared tackle and bait wise.
