  • Fishing Report

    Just starting a thread where we can check in and show off a catch, or cry a little to sympathetic ears.

    To get started, I have an elderly neighbor who had his dad's cast net and wanted to see if it was still sound. We took it to the little pond behind his house, and I started pulling out catfish. (Armored catfish, I don't eat them)
    I did catch 1 large Gar, again a fish I don't care to eat.

    And finally, when I thought the pond was not going to be of any interest:

    One nice tilapia

    Made him happy to see the net is still in great shape, made me happy to have breakfast for tomorrow, and a permanent invitation to the pond within spitting distance of my back porch.

    Casting nets are great pieces of equipment to have, I use mine mainly for baitfish if I'm using live bait. I'm an artificial lure guy myself but when I take my nieces and nephews out on the boat for a day of fishing I use live bait. They work better than lures for kids who end up loosing more lures than I'm willing to replace. Plus the live bait usually catches a lot more fish and is the best way to keep them from being bored. If the kids get bored because they're not catching anything I can guarantee it will be a real short fishing trip.

      Caught this guy and a bunch of his buddies last week. The wife and I both got our limit of Crappie, 15 each, in about 2 hrs...

      Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

        Awesome! Puts my one little fish to shame!
