    Pickup John Henry and went out to LSFL about 10:30 p.m.. We sat on the boat trailer on the Boat Ramp and watched it lighting everywhere waiting for it to blow over or start raining. It rained. We went to the house and watched http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=66101 (automatic updating, 'show severe [then] 'animate map' weather radar). I slept, John watched.
    Arrived back at the lake around 2:30 a.m.. Using liver on the bottom and/or bobbers we covered the whole lake by 4:00 p.m. 8-27-09. Right off John Henry caught a 17 ½" Stripper (CPR) on liver. Later (5:00 a.m.)John caught a eater that had a open sore on its back, might have been hit by a boat prop. We let that one go. Then John sort of caught a Turtle. About 3 p.m. John caught a eater with vena winnies and liver on the bottom. All fish were caught on the main lake and off main points in water over 15’( I think all the rain chased them into deep water for awhile).

    any amount of fishing is good for the soul. small fishing trips give you insight on when and if you return with others. keep fishing no matter how long. tunnel rat from winchester, kansas

    Went out last and something happened thats never happened to me before. I was out in a cove by a creek channel had some dough bait on bottom for cats, to break the boredom of waitin i threw out a pumpkin colored gulp lizard for the bass. Well I let it settle to the bottom right next to weed line on the bank, when I started to reel in a litlle felt a tug back. I had only 6 pound test on so it took me awhile to get it in, but it never top the water. To my surprise it was a 7 pound channel, how surprised I was. Goin again this afternoon to try it again.

    Channels will hit bass plugs, I've caught then on crankbaits, jigs, and topwater. My pb flathead was caught on a 1/8 oz bomber crank bait, aprox 24 lbs at Marion county lake, i caught a small flat at marion rev
    while trolling a couple of weeks ago, if it looks like lunch and its close they will get it. rwg
