    I finally got permission to fish a private lake that I haven't got to fish in years!!! Back in the 60's or 70's it was a pay pond and then was private.NOBODY fished it but me for several years.A few years ago,the lady that owned it passed away and I haven't fished it since.I called her Brother today and asked if I could fish it and he told me it was OK,just let him know beforehand.I've caught several large cats out of there,almost guaranteed 1 between 10-15lbs each trip.I had my line snapped there numerous times(when I used 20# test,now 30#) and am now a lot better prepared,Thanks to the BOC!!! I'm gonna try to go this eve. for a while,I'll post pics if its as good as it used to be.:big_smile: I'm so excited,its like Christmas Eve and my birthday rolled into one!!!

    Thanks,me too!!! According to her Brother,nobody has kept hardly any cats for 10-15 years.Should still be some monsters in there,I'll take a little bit of a lot of baits and hopefully wear 'em out!!!

    Went for abt an hour and a half yesterday eve.Didn't manage any cats though,so much for catchin cats there everytime.It has changed quite a bit,grown up so bad I couldn't fish it in my regular spot and the dang TURTLES have taken up residence there.I did get a cpl takedowns,but no hook ups.I managed to catch some real nice bait though,I'll post when I really get to fish it.
    Here is a pic of the bait...
