View Full Version : A few more bass+cats at Clear Lake

07-23-2006, 01:32 PM
Yesterday 7/22, Mary caught and released 2 small catfish weighing about 3 lbs each. I missed a bunch of strikes but caught no catfish. I did catch and release 2 bass of about 2 lbs each and a dink with a weightless Baby Brush Hog.

Today 7/23, Mary caught and released one small catfish of about 3 lbs. I finally nailed a catfish and it weighed 13 lbs.

I caught and released 5 bass weighing about 1 to 3 lbs split shotting (not drop shotting) a 4 inch Maverick black twister tail worm.

Here's a pic of the big catfish just before I released it:

Hi vini-v,

It was 117 yesterday and only 113 today. :o :'( Notice in the photo I'm in the shade. We fish mostly in the morning until about 10:00 or 11:00 and we're always under the shade trees. If I had to fish for even a half hour out in that sun, I'd drop dead of heat stroke, seriously.

Cast out, and the run back to the house and have your pole in your hand, if you get a bite, you can set the hook and reel it in. the trick is pulling it up the cement ;) ;D
