    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Just caught this one small, eater size Channel this evening. Was drifting using creek minnows, on two different rods. Had three small minnows impaled on an Octopus circle hook.

    Also, set out two jugs with 4 hooks each, down to 24 feet (hooks spaced 6 feet apart), used crawdads on one jug and hot dogs on the other. But, did not even lose any bait from any of the hooks on either jug. And, the Channel I caught drifting was just a few feet from one of the jugs was set.

    Not much of a catch. But, hopefully as I try to learn this lake (with a boat now, finally) I can find some of the kitties main haunts and maybe catch a bunch and a biggun or two.

    one fish is better than a skunk and just think of how good that fish will taste when you do eat him.
