I have come to the conclusion that there is either one: A few exceptionally large cats in my lake or two very temperment cats in my lake. I have yet to catch a cat in like weeks. The few I caught before were bigguns and one pansized. I thought if there were bigguns then there wood be alot more pansized. but to no avail have I figured out what they want and need I catch them randomly and have even sent one more snapper to that turtle heaven in the sky. I dont see the point in killing the painted turtles they arent big enough to kill a cat or other fish. But there are some monster snappers caught and lost a 40 lbs the other day I was hopping to send him to an early grave but it got away at the end. Snappers are Public Enemy #1. Watched one take out a duck the other day was kind of cool but if they can kill a duck a cat swiming by is an easy meal.
