Shiner2367 goes daylight catting

7 posts in this topic

Shiner2367 came out last evening to see if the cats would come out to play before the spawn, and he managed to find the hot rod.

Here's a little sampling:

Shiner finds the flats active, boating a fish in the first 5 minutes.

By the end of the excursion (he's an early riser so he finished before the sun set), he had 3 in the boat

Everyone in the boat soon had a fish, so to keep the mojo I demanded a picture with him.

He's a giver, so he contributed to the bait stash. Here's a beautiful mooneye. His next challenge is to get one on a fly.

Finally tally, 6 flats, 1 mooneye, 3 channels, 3 sheephead. EC30_06 is the king of the sheephead for the night.

Thanks for taking us out Ed and thanks for coming down Nate!

Thanks Scott for finally getting me on the river to chase cats and Eddie, thanks for the expertise and for taking us out in your boat. It was quite a different experience as I spend most of my time chasing fish with the fly rod. Those flats sure put up a good fight, can't imagine what a 40 lber. feels like!!

Thanks again for taking me out and introducing me to catting, next time I'll make sure I don't have to work the next morning so I can get the full experience.

Congrats on your first flats! I don't think you missed much Gordie, I think the big girls are nesting , 6 small ones in the boat for me last night, and thats pretty much what I heard from everyone, except one mid 30's last night.

I think I recognize that white spot in the ed/sheephead picture. Those white spots eat tackle. smile

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
