How do you catch them?  Rod and reel?  or set lines?  Those look like good eating fish right there.

 :punk:  Good fish, good pics!

We tried some jugging last night on a lake, and we didn't do worth a hoot.  Had out something like 35 jugs, and we only caught one feesh.

Once a year, I have to remind myself to STOP fishing for catfish about June 10th, and I won't have to go through any beating of my head against the wall.   :stickman1:   :rofl:

I've given up on trying to figure out when the best time of year is to catch most fish. I quit doing that after I went fishing for walleye in the river in January several years ago. I caught some really nice walleye, but it was the limit stringer of flatheads that pulled the scale down to 130lbs that got me to thinking. Since then I've realized that there are fish biting somewhere on something all the time. It's just a matter of going fishing and not fishing the way they tell you how to fish in the magazines and on tv.  :yes:

I got these on a rod and reel, but I am planning on running set lines in the lakes next year.

Is that water?  Wish we could get a little of that down here. The streams and lakes are cooking down pretty fast.
Good looking fish, those are family dinner size! :2up:
