Well I took the day off today and went fishing ...first I headed over to lon hagler looking for anything that would bite ...tried a few yozuri's, some power grubs, lipless crankbaits, I had one fish on other then that pretty uneventfull(I got there at noon!!)....Then I headed over to union used mussels and threw topwaters again nadda!!!!! Decided I couldnt go home with the skunk so headed over to big thompson ponds and caught a few cats . Shrimp and chicken liver did the trick, and those circle hooks made it even easier . Caught a bunch of smaller ones and a couple that im gonna deep fry tommorow .....Here's a couple pics

union right before I left ....

Not the biggest cat in the world but gave up one hell of a fight!!!!Im also getting ready to fall asleep standing up in the picture ....

The two I kept to fry up !!!

You sure thats sleep and not too much beer and not enough fish earlier in the day? I know that look. j/k Those some nice cats... I'm waiting to get off work and go catfishing hopefully my replacement comes in hella early but as usual he will probably be late since I want to go.

I 25 north to highway 402 get off on 402 take a right then a left onto the frontage road . From there keep going until you see a tunnel under the highway go underthe tunnel and that dirt road will take you right there . There are 3 ponds pond one and three are best for catfish

Nope, looks like there's three. Although I liked Max Cavalera better when he fronted Sepultura.

Those are a couple/3 nice fish there, what did you catch them on? The cover in the pond looks great, you should try some cutbait.

Good fishing trip! What kind of shrimp do you use? Frozen? Fresh?

Looks like you caught them during the day or before sunset. I think Imma head up there with my girl and try to catch some cats. I actually just bought catfish filets(haven't had any luck catching anything).

Prefer freshly caught ones though.

Nice catches!

I'm heading out to Big Thompson tomorrow. I have to paint the deck but should be done by 9:30. I should be able to get there about 11:00, a lot later than I would like. I think I'll put the gills, sucker, and shad aside an try some livers and shrimp. That seems to be working good for you, FG!
