    well i took my son out saturday night to my of the canals out here in Yuma AZ. we caught some nice gills for cutbait and also had some chicken livers. we were joined by a couple of my junior Marines and spent the night out there. didnt get a bite so i fell asleep at around 0030 and woke up around 0500. i went and checked my rod and found one was missing. i wasnt to concerned cause it was a little walmart cheap-o that i had set out for gills. so i reeled in my other rods to check the bait and snagged a line. then i saw the tip of my rod sticking out of the water. i pulled it up the bank by the line and was happy to have my rod back i reeled it in and on the other end was a 2 lbs channel cat. that was the only cat we caught all night. caught it on a crawler. so it was not a very exciting night, but i thought the story was interesting.

    yeah, i think after she lets me get the rods i am going to tell her that if i had a good catfish boat, it would make it all worth while. we will wait and see how long that one lasts. :big_smile:

    hey whats up man. when you guys getting back? word on the street is you will be back fairly soon. the flathead ite is starting to pick up out here, but its not yet in full swing. hopefully it will be soon. maybe by the time you get back they will be on it. good luck out there and take it easy.
