Just got back from the lake.  Spent about 2 hours (7pm to 9 pm), wading a shoreline that isn't really accessible from the bank, throwing a white beetle spin.  Didn't catch jack, not even a bite.  I was about to pack it up but then decided to try out some stink-bait I made from chicken livers, salt, flour, garlic, and water.  I let it sit out for a few days and get all rotten and maggot filled.  It stank well but was too runny and didn't stay on either regular treble-hook or sponge treble-hook.  So I used the last of my regular chicken liver, and caught a nice (channel, I think) catfish.  It put up a pretty decent fight for it's size (3-4 lbs). pretty fun and much better than getting skunked.  I didn't have any pliers so it took forever to get the hook out and I felt sorry for the fish so I went home.

I caught the cat at an area where the creek feeds into the lake and near where two fishing points meet. There is some drowned trees in the area as well.  Is this a generally good area for catfish at night?  Or did I just get lucky?





Yeah.  Channel cat like the channel that water creates when dumping into lakes.

best freshwater fish to eat: (in order)

walleye
perch
sauger
crappie
trout
catfish

stay away from

bass (of any type, even rock)
pike (they taste and smell like the slime that covers them)
sunfish

i'd say something about muskie but most of you fishing noobs have probably never even heard of them let alone landed one.   :lol:

glad you didn't say anything about muskie.  since you already said something about muskie when you mentioned pike.  a muskellunge is a type of pike.  you are a complete fishing dumbass.  go learn your fish, noob.

having spent many a fishing trip in the St. Lawrence seaway as a youth, i mock fishing dumbasses like you who come in here and try to push other fishing dumbasses around.  

 :surprised:

same family but different species...like perch, walleye and sauger.  which are, by the way, still the tastiest freshwater lake fish.

best lures for northerns, clams?  
a muskie is a pike, just as a northern is a pike.  in your post you just referred to a pike.  not a northern, which i assume you meant?

i like using rebel jointed minnows.

wELLsculptedbrows is THE goEMAW fishing expert and can drop more fishing knowledge than anyone else on this board combined.  He's basically a professional.

If anyone has fishing questions i'm confident he can answer them. 

None of this is true, but if it were, it would be in large part due to Paul Sodamann and his 1-credit-hour Fly Fishing class through the UFM. Any other elite alumni on here?

Huge tool? I'm not so sure if I believe you're an actual UFM Fly Fishing alumni ... actually, maybe your right ... I had to miss one class because of a real test in an actual class, and had to join the Federation of Fly Fishers to maintain my A. Yeah, you're right, what a dick.

But if I split my time between the two heavens of the Flint Hills and the Florida Keys, I'd think pretty highly of my lifestyle too.

I'd love to go out on his flats boat on Tuttle some time, but I'd much more love to do this:

flyfishing in Patagonia

JEALOUS.

I used to be considered among the fishing elite in my highschool; then I went to college and pretty much stopped fishing.    Waiting for my kids to get old enough to not be annoying when I take them fishing before I really get back into it. 

Best advice I had for bass fishing wannabe's is wake up a sun up and be done fishing by 9:00 - 10:00 then don't even bother trying again until about an hour before sundown.   Another big mistake people make bass fishing is wading in the water & casting out as far as they can possible cast.

When you don't have a boat you pretty much have to wade.  Then you can cast parallel to the shoreline. 

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I'm not talking exactly parallel dude; depending on how deep the fish are you should be casting anywhere between 20 degrees to 45 degrees to shore - I just lol at people that rear back & fling that rough rider 100 yards out like the farther they cast the better chance they have at catching fish.

Thanks for bringing this thread back to the top YLA.  I havent been fishing lately due to the blue-green algae bloom.

Man, dont know how I missed this thread but I'm going to OWN it next year.

I stopped fishing around July due to the drought but before that I caught a couple 5lb+ bass and a couple 10+ catfish not to mention a shitload of Wipers and Drum.

Wow, I missed this thread the first time around as well.

Great memories from fishing with my grandpa. My grandma would pack us lunches (usually consisting of PB&J, Cheetos and a Coke) and we'd be on our way to Kanopolis. Spent the day there fishing channel cat that we would take home and clean for dinner. Great bonding time. Would also hit up Marion Reservoir for bass (catch and release) and Lake Inman (if grandpa was lazy).

I haven't fished since well before I was able to drink so I'm sure that enhances the experience tenfold.
