I left to go fishing on Friday Morning to Barbour Ponds to catch carp and bluegill for catfishing this weekend. Caught 20 carp averaging 18lbs a piece and a 5 gallon bucket full of small bluegills. Left at 7:30pm to go to Boyd Lake. Fished at the area north of the sailboat ramp where the shelters were. Started at 8:30 pm but got no bites until 10:00 pm. At ten the poles lit up and the action didn't stop until 9:00 am on Saturday. Fished with fresh carp and live bluegill. Waded out until the water was chest deep and cast out. Both poles used in free spool with the clickers on so the cats could run with the bait. ended up with twenty fish from 2 lbs to 10 lbs. At 9:00am I went home and slept, then made my way to Big Thompson Ponds. I have always caught huge cats out of here, but the last two years have been tough. Started fishing at 7:00 pm on Saturday but did not catch anything for three hours. At ten my clicker on my Glostik took off and I set the hook. After thirty minutes I netted a monster: 24 pounds and 36 inches. After that the action was steady and I caught twenty more cats going from 5 lbs to 12 lbs until 7:00 am when the sleep monster came on. I fished with cut carp and live bluegills. This was definitely one of my best weekends to date!
