    2. this guy was much lighter than the picture shows and had the rounded tail rather than the fork. also fought like a puss. I've found there's not a better ...more "in close" fighter than a good channel. did catch one channel but it was a baby. maybe 7-8 inches.
    3. gotta see the chin whiskers
    4. Pretty sure that's a channel cat but nice catch

  7. A day off from work is a good day to go fishing. Landed over 50 of these guys from 12 to 15 inches. The toxic blue/green algae seems to have put a damper on the ...more fish too.
