      Your welcome! have you tried to catch catfish? If so try filleting some bluegill and after cut them in strips that should work.

  2. same fish from the other day. thought you might like the accidental reflection.

  3. 6 cats today all between 22 and 29 inches. 1 inch gulp minnows did the trick.

  4. 12 inch shellcracker. possibly a hybrid. thought I had a bass on the hook. green is reflection from my paddle.

      I sent a picture to our local game warden and this is an excerpt from her reply: 'I spoke with my biologist and sent her the picture. She said it is most likely ...more a red ear and it's not uncommon to have a whitish streak on the operculum and no red spot.'
  5. Been wanting to catch a fish that would drag my kayak around. Hooked into 2 today and landed one of them. Only 22 inches thought it would be bigger. caught on 1/8 ...more rooster tail.

  6. Kayak on a new stretch of creek. Took a couple of rooster tails. Only 1 crappie. The rest of my fish were channel cats. Go figure.

      went back today prepared to catch more cats and wound up with 6 lmb. no cats.
  7. I have a 10 foot pelican fishing kayak. I also have an 8 pound mushroom anchor. Holds really well, but I have no trolley system. I am not afraid of anchoring from ...more the side as I won't be doing it in rough water. Problem is, the kayak turns opposite from where I want to fish. Is there any other way besides a trolley system to anchor from the rear?

  8. nice fish on a 1 inch gulp minnow.

  9. first fish in my new kayak. my native propel is just too heavy for me to load and unload.
