    fishing has really been bad for me this year, bought a new boat and have had it on the water once, fishing alone is no fun.

    Small channels in Grand Lake (between a pound or 2) And Not very many of them. Caught on on Chicken Liver and about 5 on Chubs. Only had one bite tryin' Ivory soap.

    went last nite in the St. Marys River. Caught a bull head, a small leather back and missed SEVERAL bites. Some were just nibbles but 2 of them were totally my fault. They were bitin' just not bitin' solid.

    Went out at the last minute 6/26 with the Maddcatter, we hit dillon first and he caught a 4 pound channel in ten minutes. Then he missed a couple in the next two hours and I could'nt get bit by nothin but skeeters. We moved up to Ellis dam around 11pm I think. Water was high and fast we were using 10 and 12 ounces of lead and our lines still kept swinging downriver. But I did catch a 3lb channel there and Josh caught two more in the 3 to 4 lb range. The guys fishing next to us caught a 36lb flathead on a 10 inch chub about 1:30. (Damn). Josh headed home around 3:30, I stayed till 5 with no hits at all.

    Well went fishing last night at a pond, only had some dead bait.. untill i caught 3 live bluegill out of the pond, the night was slow untill my bobber went under at about 9:20 Pm. I was fishing about 1 1/2 ft deep about 2 feet off the bank, fought the cat for about 10 mins and reach in and grabbed my personal best.. the cat was a nice shovelhead, we stuck his head in a 5 gal. bucket and weighed it, he burred the 28Lb scales, no camera, and was well over 36 in long it was dragging the ground while mouth at my waist. the rest of the night only 1 more was caught about 4Lb channel and I had another run.. hoping to go to the creeks tomorrow, just put about 30 little channels in my fish tank :) keep posting on results, they apparently are about done spawning.. lets hope anyway!
