me and my brother have been goin for crappie lately (cought a nice 11 in white one at deer creek before it got too windy...crazy) and we decided that we would go to griggs a couple days ago. We were fishing off a boat ramp for black crappie and within 2 minutes or so of fishing all of our minnows died:sad2::angry:. So we decided that we would try to catch some bluegills for catfish bait later that night (the minnows where a little to small to use for bigger cats). So I cut up the minnows to little-mini cut bait chunks for blue gill and I slowly lowered it inbetween the planks on the wood dock. it was maybe an inch thick, so a small blue gill would fit with no prob (youd be supprised how easy it is to pull on through such a small space). then, about 30 seconds later, my rod bent a little to much to be a blue gill, so i realed it up as much as I could to the wood and peared through the crack. the first thing I saw was those 2 lilttle wiskers and those spots along its side! channel cat! this was like 4-5 feet off the shore in 3 foot water. we had to take the needle nose pliars through the crack to get em off thehook! anyone else have a funny story?
