    Took a little field trip,, To San Carlos Reservoir
    We hauled Jims pontoon down there, and since the water is nowhere near the boatramp,, we launched "old style".. Glad Bubbacats's truck is LONG, and 4x4....

    I caught the First Channel, and retired for the night ,, or may as well have...
    It seemed to be Daves (Bubbacats) night, as he didn't let any of us get any sleep, catching fish ALL night... About the time we'd get an eye shut,, there he'd go again..Rods banging around and clickers ripping...:big_smile:

    Jim topped off the trip by catching his first catfish since he started fishing with us,,and, He's been putting in the time, and putting up with us!!! and,, we actually thought he was going with just to get out of the house,, :cool2::big_smile:
    Jim sure makes good coffee,,
    Also, Jim had rigged up his poontoon to be enclosed, which we didn't get a picture of this trip,,and, with the heat going, we were about as comfortable as could be..

    So none of us got skunked on our first trip to San Carlos..:wink:

    Yea, that Bog, is the perfect place to use braid... No structure at all,, no worries..:tounge_out:
    I did manage to get hung up,, but, mainly because, since that lake is so small,
    I missed it,( yes, the whole lake) on one cast,, and my rig landed into the cliff on the west side...:wink::smile2:, we were on the east end,,,,,

    I did manage to retrieve it intact,, none the worse for wear!!:roll_eyes:

    Congrats on the catch! sounds like you need one of those duck boats that go land and water! Greg, have you gone by and fed our waterdogs over at Dave's trough?

    How dare you guys to not release those catfish! If skunko were here, you would get an earfull! Better for them to be thrown back, and suffocate when there is no water left, than go home and become a meal!
    Good job guys! looks like you did well!
