Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has had this happen to them while fishing for channels. Today I went out just to relax and not keep anything for dinner. I hit a mother load of channels and ended up playing around with them. OK, OK, I'm getting there. I released at least 75 channels today, nothing under 2 1/2 lbs and largest was a tad over 8lbs, I even removed the barb on my hook so I could get them off the hook without damaging them. When they took my pork liver, they just seemed to suck it in and the lay there. I started to give them a couple nudges and they would nudge it back like they wanted to stay in a cosey spot or something, a few of them I was able to gently pull them foward by as much a 10 feet before pulling back on it. Could this be from a pre-spawn gathering.I know I caught the same fish several time because I gently marked them before I released them. I swear to god, I was having so much fun I was laughing all day.
