    Jerry what are you using for bait. I was not sure if you use night crawlers, cut bait, livers?? I use minnows live or cut bait here and they grab it up. Mostly blue channel cats here.

    Dip bait, chicken liver, night crawlers, cut bait if I catch a little blue gill, shad, shrimp. This one was dip bait. I like the convenience of it mostly.

  5. I'm waiting for the fall fishing season to get here. With my luck I'll be off somewhere still working on the census or it'll be a wet fall and any dry days will be spent working on firewood :(

  7. Jerry,
    When I lived in Missouri many years ago, I moved to St. Joseph to attend college, I worked the graveyard in a shop and rob convenience store and my best friend was a cop working it too. We used to get off work and go fishing for catfish...one of my favorite freshwater fish. We were using a treble hook with oatmeal and oxblood...have never seen it anywhere else but it was available in St. Joe. It worked like a charm and we harvested lotsa catfish...

  8. I won't mind as much if I'm working. If it's because of rain I'll be a bit more cranky.

    Excellent cat wrangling, jerry! Hope you get to wring every ounce of Fall out of this season before hard water sets in.

    Thanks Jaison
    If it gets hard enough, I’ll cut a hole in the ice and keep trucking.

    Said a little prayer for this guy and pretty much all the fish and game I harvest. He was a fighter. Amazing creature of God and thankful for the food.

    Craig, I wish miles and time weren’t such constraints, many here I’d like to adventure with.
