a nice weekend with a grandson

I tried to explain to the kid, that they should pay attention to their elders and they might learn to catch a big fish.

++++++

The kid said that sometime an old dog might learn a new trick from a kid

and now get the net.

++++++++

It was just a little larger than my fish smarty pants.

++++++++++

While I was cleaning and cooking fish, the kid was squirrel hunting.

+++++++

and then he pigged out on fried cat fish

++++++++++

and then a dog squirrel hunting trip with his buddy, Marvin.

++++++++

Then deer hunting early the next morning in a nice big cozy heated box stand.

++++++

So much for hunting, time for a nap

++++++++

where are the bigger catfish on Sam Rayburn?

It’s just not fair to the fish.

This is a photo of my ‘electronic fish finder’.

The lines with curves in 22′ to 25′ are fish.

In  this case, they are catfish eating my chum.

Not only can I tell if fish are at this spot, I can tell how deep to fish.

With these units, you can actually watch your bait.

=====

Today’s fishing resulted in only small fish.

=====

I tried 30′, 25′ and 22′.

The results were the same, lots of small fish.

=====

The last Channel Catfish spawn must have been great in Sam Rayburn.
