    ya just got back from fishin, we started at around 7:30 and right off the bat we caught 2 nice fish, we threw one back cuz we had to cut it open to get the hook out and it died anyways, then we went inside and ate, then we came back out and nothin happened till my pole went flyin into the water(darn turtles), we started draggin for that and gave up and started to fish again, then my buddy snags onto somethin and guess what it is MY POLE!!!, but the line was snapped. so i rigged it back up and casted it out, then i latched onto this monster cat, big enough to snap 20 pound spiderwire.. (rrr) so i rigged again and casted out and caught a 4 pounder, then my buddy found this hole and caught 2 of the three, then i caught one more ending our night with 5 but we threw one back on accident before takin pics. o well it was little one anyways at 2 pounds, the biggest of the night that we caught was 4 pounds but the one i lost was by far the biggest i could hardly reel cuz it was pullin so hard, then when the line snapped i practically flew backwards!. it was big. the smallest one was 2 pounds though so it was an awsome night.
    the podunk kid was my fishin buddy for this evening and hes new hear so make him feel at home and stuff and show him what catfishin is all about!!
    ill post pics in the morning of the fish by the way

    Nice pics. Welcome podunk. Check your drag most peope set drag to tight. as the spool unwinds more tension is put on the drag. the time we find out is on a trophy and then its too late. sorry to here about the big one.

    Like Leonard said - check your drag on every reel each time you go out. It really sucks to lose them big ones :crazy:

    Congrats on a good night of fishing. Next time spool up with 30lb test and don't try and force anything with him, let him run some, unless there's a lot of cover there, then you have to do some forcing with him. I would try that spot again here soon if I was you and see if you can't get that bad boy back.

    Looks like you guys had a great night! :big_smile::big_smile::big_smile:. You can eliminate gut hooking if you use some circle or khale hooks. Remeber to set the drag ;)

    Welcome podunk kid whenever you show up!
