So I am on vacation in Charleston and decided this morning (after finding out that it was supposed to rain after lunch and then be cloudy for the rest of the afternoon) that I would go and try my luck at some catfishing. Once it started raining I headed for a local lake (that I grew up fishing on) because I know there are lots of eating sized cats in this lake. Well it rained extemely hard for about 30 minutes and then tapered off into a drizzle. I get setup and catch 9 or 10 bluegills (in about 10-15 minutes) for cut bait and rig up the catfish poles. Well with in 5 minutes of casting out the cut bait I caught my first cat about 3lbs no sooner than I get him on a stringer then my other pole takes off another cat about 2lbs. The catfish were on a feeding frenzy as I ended up catching about a dozen (in the 2-4 lbs range), all in about 45 minutes. I figured I had enough catfish for a nice fish fry for the family and the bass are hitting top water every where so I figured I would try some lures and see if I could get a bass or two just for the heck of it. I walk down the bank a little ways and throw out a chatter bait a few times and get a couple of hard hits and finally hook one. Well I get it to shore and into the net it was a 3 lb largemouth. I am working on getting the hook out when I hear all hell break loose back behind me. I turn around and a DARN Gator was eating my stringer full of cats. Talk about crashing the party. So much for the fish fry we ended up going to Red Lobster instead, what a bummer. Even though the gator ate my dinner I still had a great time fishing because the fishing and catching was excellent.
