      Thanks! @bassinboy01 I wasn't 100% positive I could use them as bait, but I couldn't find anything on TPW about them being a game fish so I figured I might ...more as well give it a shot. It paid off!
    2. Jacob Breaux 0
      Nice! Way to use the whiting as bait. Pretty safe bet is to use whatever you're catching on the bait rods. Good stuff

      Haha. Last night was my last night here. All I have been catching the last couple days has been whiting and hardheads. This was a nice surprise! @Angler09

    Abu Garcia 6500C3 with an Ugly Stik Tiger rod. This 25 pounder slammed the drum and peeled drag for a while. Great fight and a new personal best Blue Cat. Bank fishing ...more at it's finest!

  3. Anchored up in some timber next to a creek channel targeting blue cats. Had a decent takedown and figured we had a good blue and ended up being this guy. Weighed ...more in at 6 lbs. Gear: Abu Garcia 6000, Pro Angler Tackle rod, 65 lb braid, and an 8/0 Gamakatsu circle hook.

  5. Details: Flathead Catfish with a Palm sized bluegill

    Abu Garcia 6500 C3, ugly stik tiger rod, 65 lb braid main line, 40 lb mono leader. This guy hit the bluegill like a freight train. I'm guessing 40 ish lbs. I'm ...more 6 ft 220 lbs so feel free to guess. My personal best by a long shot!

      @GarcuaJu you are entitled to your opinion, but I'm gonna disagree and say that it's to big to eat. Anything over 10 pounds I release.
    2. GarcuaJu 0
      That's a small cat not even big enough to eat

      Of nice cats out there. As well as plenty of bait fish to keep them healthy and well fed as you can see by this guys gut. @get_bitjr
    4. olenarey87 0
      No sir. Someone I know has a private pond that is about the same size (if not a little bigger than sunshine). He noodles and releases some of the fish he catches ...more in it and has a healthy population...

      Thank you sir. @MulletHead apparently I overestimated the weight on him. But he was approximately 39 inches long. My personal best by a long shot!

  6. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Cut shad

    Fishing for catfish and I had a strong takedown on one of my rods. Ended up being this nice bass. I'm guessing 4 pounds, maybe 5?

  7. Details: Alligator Gar with a Cut shad

    Trying to catch cats all night and had a ton of hits but no real takedowns. Finally caught the culprit!

    1. Brian Mcpherson 0
      Nice catch!
  8. Caught this guy below a spillway on the Trinity. Also caught a big soft shell turtle. Had a few good runs that I can only assume we're gar.

    1. olenarey87 0
      Yeah, I decided he could keep my hook and I just cut him loose. Rather replace a hook than a finger! @FISH_FEST

      Not too often you see a big alligator like that. Cool dude!

  10. Details: Alligator Gar with a cut shad

    Was fishing for cats when I had a good run and reeled this guy in. He was a fun catch, but would have preferred a nice blue or flathead!
