    Successful weekend on the water. Took my brother-in-law Eric and his cousin Noah fishing over the weekend. My friend Al attended the event also. Eric caught a master angler channel cat weighing in at 12.4# and measured 31". Nice fish! The same morning he caught another hog at 7.5#. This time something was strange. When Eric boated the 7#, he noticed a clamp of a fish stringer was left lodged in the fishes' mouth. Apparently, someone had the fish tied up on the stringer and the fish broke free leaving the clamp left in the fishes' mouth. We got the fish freed of the clamp and CPR'd the fish. He looked very healthy and no noticable sores were present. All other fish were released to. I caught 2 fish at 3 and 4#. Noah caught 2 around the same weight and Al caught a couple two. Last night I went with some friends and I caught a 7# and 4#. My friends caught 5 total. Nice keeper fish. We decided to keep a few for the frying pan. Awesome. All fish were caught while drifting blood. Elwood Res. Fish in Nebraska!!

    Pics of Eric's fish. A 12.4, 7.5 and 3.13#.

    Notice the clamp of the stringer left in the fishes mouth on Eric's 7.5#!!
