      I usually freeze 4-5" blue gills. When they thaw their scent gets real strong and they ooze mucus real slow. I've got quite a few flatties like this and ...more 1 blue. It's hard to come by blues here @SwampMafia

      I use 3"x5" chunk for big blue cats and some times get a flathead too.

      Was a decorative pond at a church. They had grass carp in there too. I was assuming they wanted to keep the weeds down. Probably gonna hit it up again soon. Ill ...more try it as bait never tried carp yet @SwampMafia

      Most pond/land owners I know would be mad if I released a carp in their pond.

      Did you remove any of them? They make good cut bait for catfish.

Enjoy sitting back and throwing a line. Have a great time teaching my kids about the sport, as well as people who never had the experience of ...more fishing.
