hit the ponds at chatfield friday night, nothing but one bluegill, a bunh of big crawdads (like i said, they would be in a week from my last post) and a giant toad. it was still fun of course

perhaps the cats need a bit more time, im gonna post my crawdad pics, i should change my name to crawdad master or something, i got some huge ones, and i think it was epic talking about them drawing blood, 1 got my in the thumb and ive got two lil holes...ouch

Which ponds were you on Mustang? The ones closest to Kingfisher or the ones further south down by Kassler?

I feel for ya brother, I still cant believe that one got me like it did. Good to hear you had good time, what are you using for bait? Maybe we can help you out targeting those cats.

i was fishing the ones near kingfisher, driving down the road from the wadsworth entrance and taking a right where u have access to a bunch of ponds, fishing the big on on the right


epic, was using worms, buddy using liveers, other buddy using stinkbait, we had it all covered, the guys next to us didnt get a bite either, wrong area at the wrong time i guess, but like i say, always fun to hang with ur friends all nigh and ill be back over summer a bunch, in a week or two im hitting plum creek at night

Since you know there are crawdads in there you should have thrown a couple of them out, when fishing for cats I like to rig them 1of 2 ways. First way being just the tail, break/cut/rip the tail off and run a hook threw it and set it on the bottom or a short dropshot off the bottom. The other way is I pull the pinchers off or atleast one side of them I think catfish tend to drop them if they latch onto their whiskers. I then peel the plate off thats located right behind the eyes. This exposes all that meat and I feel adds more scent so the catfish can find it, since they have good smellers. I usually hook this one rightunder the head and out the meat or threw the tail so it sits curled like a fleeing crawdad.
I cant promise you these ways will work or would have worked that night like you said may been wrong place wrong time or water temps might have been a little to cold or whatever, just another technique to add to your arsenal.

Thanks for the tip. The reason I usually don't fish with craws even though I catch hundreds is I can never seem to keep them on the hook. Your tips shoudl help me.

Dan-
I would go tonight but I have 3 more days of school. All finals.

Ill be there Wednesday and Thursday night for sure.
