    Hello all,
    Thanks for the great info on this forum.
    Is there anyone else on the south side of VA. I am about an hour from Bristol. I mainly fish South Houston, and I get in a trip to Cherokee in TN a couple times each year. I have a 1988 Bass Tracker that I have rebuilt for cat fishing and we also have a 2000 Lowe 19 foot deck boat that may end up finding a new home. I am looking for something like a Sea Ark 24 ft aluminum boat.

    Wow, thanks for all the warm welcomes. I am always looking for new fishing buddies and it looks like this is a good place to meet a few.
    We went to the camper at South Houston lake this weekend and got in a little fishing. The kids, David Jr (5) and Isabella (3) got to catch some nice size carp and and few small cats while there were out with me. My Isabella caught a 31 inch carp that was a blast to watch.
    I got to get into a few Channel cats, one that was 34 inches and another that was 31 inches. My scale was broken (darn thing) so I did not get to weigh them. I caught a few other smaller ones but just the two nice ones.
    I tried chicken liver, night crawlers, blue gill (both live and cut), shrimp, and shrimp & night crawler combine (serf & turf). The only bait that the cats seemed to like was the plain shrimp. I had one really good hit on a whole blue gill but it just ran a little line and clicked the bait clicker for a couple of seconds. :sad2: I did get a few pictures if I can salvage them from my stupid camera phone.:angry:

    Thanks again for the welcomes.
    David

    Thanks guys,
    tnkatman (Kevin),
    How often do you go out on Houston? Do you ever fish the Va side? Houston can be tough fishing some times. We may have to get together and double up on the fish. What type of boat do you have?
