We catght 60+ big cats a day trying to better the best, it was a brawl..........like I said .....It was a Blast.

Great time and I would highly recomend the Cats Classic event to anyone intersted in big cats and fishing with great folks.

The on the water staff checking team weights were top notch and on the ball even in the steady rain of saterday, great job guys. Stu and crew did a good job and you can count on us being ready for 2003.......and more piggys.

Great to finally meet ya Canuck!

Way to go Ed. To do that well in an area that you don't fish that often really speaks for your "sixth sense" of sniffing out those catfish! Bruce

It was on the news last night. Two garbage bags full of marijuana were found by a guy out looking for frogs by the Horseshoe Bend - figured it might be you.

Ya, it was me. Strange deal?

Some times you stumble on the dardest things when your stomping for frogs.

The cops didn't get too excited about it really, hard to say if they got what they needed to find who put it there?

The frogs in that area seem to be preaty darn easy to catch, so maybe they are all stoned?

Well, there is nothing like a happy frog! That happened to a friend of ours also. He had gone out of town and someone was doing chores for him and found a bag by a tree next to his driveway. Scared the heck out of the kid so he hid it in the barn until the landowner got home.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....
    • Borch
      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
