    I fished milford lake for a little bit in kansas:


    Day 1, 6 am till 10 am:
    -5 goldeyes (1-2 pounds, average)
    -3 catfish (two 2-3 pounders, one 8 pounder)
    -2 white bass (average size)
    -1 wiper (small)

    I actually caught two catfish on a spoon, and a 8 pound blue on cut goldeye.

    Day 2, 5 am till 10 am:
    -goldeyes (didn't count how many, but we located where they were schooling and caught them right after the other with spoons)
    -white bass (same as goldeyes, probably caught 8 or so)
    -wipers (one really nice 8 pounder, 4 smaller ones a few pounds each, caught on a crawler harness with a spinner baited with nightcrawlers)
    - 3 catfish (2 on a spoon, one 4 pounder on the crawler rig)

    evening... 6 pm till around 8'ish
    one wiper (3 pounder, caught on a crawler rig)
    one small drum

    Day 3 morning, 7:30 am till 11:am
    -two catfish (crawler rig)
    -one wiper (small)

    best luck was early in the morning. On day 2, we caught 5 species (goldeye, white bass, wiper, catfish, walleye). My dad caught one walleye on a spoon and I wanted that walleye on my hook lol. I will give you guys my favorite rig from now on, a walleye nightcrawler harness w/ a spinner, baited with a crawler. caught every species, including that 8 pound wiper that really made the drag sing :smile2: .

    we used shiners and black salties on day 2 and 3, and the nightcrawler out performed both.

    on my way back to NC, I went trout fishing and caught three rainbow trout at a small trout pond that a stream flowed into in the mountains. One trout was 4 pounds, the others around 2 pounds maybe, I only weighed the big one. They are really pretty fish, I want to fish for them more someday. I got a few pictures taken, but it is on a throw away camera, so I will have to get the film developed and see if I can get a good re-picture or 2. I'm not the best at digital cameras, I will try to get it on here.
