I went out with my dad this afternoon from about 4:30-8 pm to fish for catfish in Stockton. I got one catfish about 5 pounds (pics coming when I get them from my dad's cell phone) and my dad caught one tiny bluegill. It was a good day considering we only had to drive about 3 miles to get to the fishing spot.Posted ImageNotice how fat it is, I think it's pregnant, I let it go to make more baby catfish.

nice going.. never caught a catfish but have caught plenty of blues, they're fun fish to catch.

You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

That's a good one! They're fun to catch especially on crankbaits. But a clam or some chicken liver is always a good bet. Have fun reeling them in. :)

I caught this one on the cooked shrimp from the grocery store. I was going to drive around town and find a store that had beef liver in stock (beef liver stays on the hook better than chicken liver) but I got distracted so I decided to just pick up a package of shrimp. It is a lot less messy to handle than any kind of liver or anchovies / shad that are the normal baits. I will probably be using shrimp again. at $3.00 a pound its really not much more expensive than liver.
