    Ok, so I have been going to the Rio Grande almost daily for 2 weeks. In the last 3 days the cats have been eating everything with reckless abandon. Not much over 15" but, I am happy catching 50-60 cats a day no matter what the size. Best part is haven't seen another soul on the river, besides my buddy. I've decided to save my cutbait and live bluegills for another day, just been using cut water snakes and bullfrog belly strips. Here's a picture of an average one:

    Way to go Seth,I got behind on my mowing and didn't get to get out this weekend here. Rain is bringing some good runoff into the lake so the cats should be turhin on here as well.

    Yeah, I won't be able to fish it soon, school starts in a day. I woke up at 2 today just to fish it until 8, only about 25 little guys today.
