    My Uncle Blaine and I have been planning all summer to hit up the red for cats so this monday I borrowed my step-dads 16ft lund and we headed out there. He has never fished for big cats out there before so he was in for a treat!! ;) It rained most of the day but that didn't bother the cats one bit after forgetting the crawlers at home we still managed 6 nice goldeyes on rotten old minnow heads. ;D With those 6 fresh goldeyes uncle Blaine and I boated 30 nice cats at least 20 over 34" master angler size and we caught two surprise walleyes on the goldeyes 8) Here's some of the highlights.
    Started off with a couple of sub ma's

    next ones a little bigger still not quite what we were looking for...
    [​IMG]
    Then we started to get into some pigs ;D

    You have got to love our regulations catch and release is working for these big cats!!
    [​IMG]
    Then Uncle Blaine got into the action with a 36"er
    [​IMG]
    These fish are well fed!! 38"
    [​IMG]
    Uncle Blaine with a 34.5"
    [​IMG]
    When I saw the head on this tank I thought for sure it was going to go 40" but it was only 39"
    [​IMG]
    I think this one was 35"

    Uncle Blaine was having a blast!!

    I never get tired of fish like these!!

    Down to my last piece of fresh goldeye we were sitting at 29 cats and one 20" walleye my uncle caught When I get a bite I thought it was a small cat I was wrong it was this fat 25" walleye wiht a chunk missing of it's tail :eek: nice way for my day to end!! 8)

    Then Uncle Blaine gets a bite

    nice way to end the night number 30

    Wow, great catches! Is that in the floodway, or the river itself?
