    There are a couple of ponds at my wifes work, so I thought I would give the cats a whirl. I used my flyrod to catch some gill for fresh cutbait and tightlined one off the bottom, the other one I was giving my homemade "catbobbers" a try using 5/0 circles on both rods.
    All told I got 18 channels in 3.5 hours! All were CPR'ed. The bobber outfished the tightline 14-4
    Had a blast all by myself in a camp chair.:wink:

    Sounds like a great time, my pond is finally getting some water back in it after being bone dry since 9/2008. If the rain keeps up I've got plans to replace the channels that we lost last year.
