C'mon Cuz and Chad. Wondering if you guys did any good after we left?
Het doug I seen a 40 yamaha on craigslist for 300 with extra prop and controls. If I had the money I would get it
The report was 2 rats, according to a text from Cuz.
So lets hear a report from the SASS' brothers. How did ya all do this weekend?
Just as bad. Was down there with Cuz and Chad, we boated 1 stinking rat and left at 9:00pm as we'uns work in the daytime....EARLY!
I am at work by 6 am my friend, I just have tuesdays off.
Ok, I'll blame it on your youth. I used to be able to hoot with the owls all night and still go to work but not anymore.:embarassed:
Thats called old age Skip:wink:
Skip you may be old but your young at heart. I could tell that you would have even pulled an all nighter out of our recent Alton trip if they were biting good.:big_smile::wink::big_smile::wink:
Two rats. That's it. Ha a great time getting to know Chad. He's really good people. Thanks a million for the invite buddy. Were trying to figure out if Chad got a pike or a Muskie in the bait net. Craziest thing. He also got a 15 poind flathead in the net on the very first throw. Lol we marked some real nice returns in textbook places but they sure wouldn't eat.
Thx again for a great time Chad. That's a pretty stretch of river you guys got up there.
Speaking of nets: In 1 throw, from my waverunner,I pulled up 7 white Bass. two of them were 18 inches long
I went fishing below bagnell on saturday and the biggest fish I caught all day was about a 3 lb largemouth in my cast net. Couldn't catch any shad to save my life but i caught about 100 crappie.
Now I'm confused:confused2:
What classifies a rat?
We did this a while back......I think it was something like this
A dink = 1-20lbs
A dandy = 20-40lbs
A pig = 40-60lbs
A hawg = 60+
purty sure that is how it was defined...
Rat, thanks for the clarification on the cat classification, Cuz thanks for coming out with me, hope to do it again when the cats are biting. Talked to Tony Hunt, sounds as if he did worse than us cuz. Anybody fishing tonight heads up storms are supposed t be rollin in in a few hours.
dink 0 -10
rats 10 - 20
dandys 20 - 40
pigs 40 - 60
hogs 60 and above
For example grump N Skipeye calls cuz n Chad last night n says "how yall doin?"
cuz " we got a dink n a rat n that's it"
There will be a quiz at the meeting lmao
Anytime on the river is great :big_smile:, fishing the upper pools though is a roller coaster
:confused2: I was on the lower 1/3 of the pool above Winfield dam this morning
noticed water was dropping below the dam so hit the river above it and had a good day with the channel cats
was going for the fillets and tossed back 2 dinks per 1 keeper
caught em both deep and shallow
the females still had eggs, that is bazaar this time of year :crazy: but I have noticed with the water fluctuation again this year that some hold off, but as of two weeks ago water temp was above 80, today it was 74 so perhaps that was also a factor
awesome morning out there, air temp was in mid 50s this morning, between 9:30 and 10:00 am temp got hot and the bite got cold
good day in all. :wink:
Did you all catch anymore after i called you? and what time did you all end up getting off the river. After i got off the phone with you fishing got even better. I was a good night and an even better time. I think we found your spot for the tourny next weekend, if you catch what we caught last night you'll be in the money:wink: We have to hook up one night in my neck of the woods. How is work tonight, call me if you need anything or if you have a question.
Hey Josh. I think we caught one more fish after you called. It was slooowwwwwwwww. We got off the river right about first light. I think it was about 530. Glad you had a good night. Chad said you had a couple nice fish.
