    Yeah Will really wished I could have joined you guys that night. I hope to try that spot this week after work for a few hours since I'm only 15 min away LOL sorry bout that. Anyway I think that spot is a wintering hole and I may need an extra pair of hands to square some things away this fall so may be able to treat you to several days of fishing and a new 7000 c3 for some of your help.
    Have to let you know, so thanks for the post and ttyl.

    Yep this was a very good night of fishing. Ive have literally chased flatheads ALL year so didnt get to channelcat fish as much as i usually would. I would accidently catch a stray channel cat while fishing flatheads but havent been targeting them. THAT WAS A MISTAKE! I forgot how much fun these fish can be. My goal for next year...dont target one fish. I want to fish for flatheads and channelcats equally next year. Boy was this a fun trip. Reps to will for helping cut down trees to keep me and my "new friend" warm. I also learned some other things on this trip. Will forgot to mention that on our trip we met a homeless fellow. We talked to him quite a bit while we were there. He was down on luck and stuff hasnt been going his way. Im glad we went, kept him company, and showed him a thing or two about channelcat fishing. I learned not to judge a book by its cover. Anyhow 32 degrees is far to cold to fish in but heck it was a great time and all worth it!

    Homeless guy........ive been fishing a spot where there has been two homeless guys living/staying in a make shift tent.............were you fishing a creek mouth ?? might be the same spot that i fish ???

    there seems to be a lot of homeless people living along the Tusc right now............i know of the two guys that i mentioned above and one other guy who is staying alone and they ALL stay right on the banks of the river !!!

    The great part about where you fished is that most people don't try for channels there.

    Can't complain about a numbers and size night like that one on the Tusc!
