    Last night my girlfriend caught this 11 lb. channel cat, and I caught this 5 lb. channel cat. Creek was running good from the rain. Shad didnt get any bites. Both of these caught on chicken livers. The channel I caught had a huge head but tiny body. Weird looking. Anyway , it was a good night, it was my gf's 2nd biggest fish next to a 14 lb. farm pond channel 5 yrs ago.

    Well, this isn't recent but the outdoor temps were about the same as it is now. I caught this at Olathe Lake back on June 2 at around a 5:45pm in about 15ft of water on a shad head.
    I'm catching a few 5-10lb channels there now at the same time of day. Enough to keep me fed anyway. :)
    This flat weighed a little over 17lbs. I'm 6'9" and the fish was laying against my chest in the pic to give a size comparison.
    My personal best.

    I was fishing off the dam. It was a pristine spot until a person (who didn't speak English) saw me catch this Flat.
    So now, just walk down the dam until you see all the trash. That's where I caught it. :sad2:

    There's fish all over that lake. Next time you go there, PM me. It would be nice to meet another BOC member.
