Just posting a note about the St Louis gathering that took place on Saturday August 19th. I had a great time and it was nice to meet some local catfishing goo-roos like myself. I had some relatively good success...1st fish was a 9 pound channel caught on cut asian carp. Next was a 10 pound blue caught on fresh caught / cut shad. Fish #3 was a five pound blue on cut shad and finally a 13 pound blue on fresh cut shad. I have NEVER had a night like this before! I was having a great time and before I knew it, it was 2:00am and time to go home. :sad2: I really want to go again and hopefully you all want to as well. I'd like to get together again before the year is over. Every trip I try to learn something new, this trip I learned that I need to keep fresh bait on the hook. Everytime I put fresh bait on...the fish would hit!:big_smile: I had tons of fun and am planning on going back there this upcoming weekend. Maybe I can talk some of you to get there also.
