Yeah, I really want to try out some river spots so thank you for the recommendation! I am going to try and fish a few stocked lakes for Channels until I get a method or technique that I find out that I like. Also, I would want to put on some heavier test, in case I ran into a pig, and get a few bigger 'river' sinkers to help with the current.
Logan - me and my cousin are grabbing our rods and heading out tomorrow afternoon when he's done with class to try and find some Channels. We're going to grab some crawlers and head to Island or Peltier, or maybe both.
Thanks to the help of a couple of people and their insight & tips, I was able to land my first ever Kitty!!! No idea of how big she was but she sure fought hard! She had a big belly full of spawn, so I played her quickly, snapped a few pictures (since she was my first ever) and got her back in the lake.
I also listened to your tip PierBridge (kiss your first cat of the year or EVER).......
I didn't know I was supposed to kiss that kitty like I kiss my girlfriend. I wouldn't want those strong jaws to clamp down on my tongue, so I took the safe alternative, ha. Plus the girl I kiss doesn't have whiskers, that might have thrown me for a loop!!
