I am sorry to say I am human, and at times I get a little upset with myself because other brothers on the board do not agree with me about the tackle they use to catch fish, or the number of poles they use, or the manner of catching fish (jugs, trots, noodling) etc. I tell myself all the time that it is their right to have their opinion, as it is my right to form and express my opinions. This said, let me get to the part which disgusts me. I live about 100 yards off Guthrie Lake in central Oklahoma. Due to the drought we are experiencing, the lake is down six or seven feet. My friend, Fuzzface, and I went walking the shore today sort of scavaging whatever we could find. We found a lot of lead from split shots up to 5 ounces and a bunch of lures the bass fishermen left snagged in brushpiles when they were submerged. We also found about a 5 pound saugeye, several 16 to 18 inch channels, some carp, some white bass and 1 largemouth bass which had died for some reason or another. We also found two flatheads which would weigh between 30 to 35 pounds. We thought the lake was getting depleted of oxygen and the fish were dying, as so many lakes In Oklahoma are reporting. However, the game wardens said these fish died because some sportsmen was using too light of line, allowed the fish to take the bait and play with it, so when the hook was set, they were gut hooked. Then the lines either broke or the sportsmen practiced CPR. I still think 20 lb test line would handle just about anything swimming in North American waters. But, I'd rather everyone fished with 65 lb Power Pro than to see 1 dead catfish because the guy didn't know what he was doing. That, to me, is totally disgusting.
