    I had one of the best days I have had in a long tiime.It was not all about catching fish although we did but I had both my boy's with me on this trip and it seem's less and less these day's that happens.

    Got to the lake about 9am and on the forth throw of the cast nest I had about 30 BIG shad 9"-12" in the net.I told them right there this is going to be a good day.

    Motor over into about 5' of water and tied down.I started cutting shad and before I was even baited up Jason (my youngest) was into a fish.Got him to the boat and Aaron (My oldest) slipped a net under him a solid 7lber.

    In the next 1hr 30min we had 8 in the boat.

    Right after Jason landed his Aaron's rod went down and after a good battle with a light pole he landed a 10lber.This continued for the next 3 hrs.

    We ended up with 20 cats in 4 hrs..a 10lb-9lb-8lb 4 @7lb and none smaller than 3 lbs.

    This is a day I will remember for a long time.

    Pic coming soon..

    Nice Tom. Nothing better than getting in the middle of a bunch of hungry cats.
