Jason and I got there on Tuesday. We managed to get some lines out with cut buffalo and fresh cut shad. Water was flowing good and looked perfect. We didn't try too hard as we were just trying to get lines out and get ready for Luis and Ronnie coming in Wednesday to fish.
In the morning we had on a few catfish (nothing big just all eater size that we threw back) and one HUGE gar. It was 6'3" long with a 29" girth. I was wild guessing 160-180 pounds.
We rebaited the lines hoping when the guys showed up and we did the evening run they would have a few fish on the lines.. I never expect much during the day but they had 12-15 good size catfish on that afternoon..All 2-5 pounders. They started the trip wanting to keep every fish...But that soon changed and they started throwing fish back on day 2 of their 3 day trip
Thursday morning they had on this super nice blue cat. They released this one.
Plus a mess of smaller fish. They also had this good size gar on one line.
So Thursday afternoon they said they really wanted to catch a flathead. They were willing to work for it so we went and threw nets for 3-4 hours trying to get better bait. We managed a few perch and some larger shad to cut up.
