I'm sure that'll stink.

|prairiedog555||I have had some luck using cheap hot dogs that are soaked for awhile in that liquid crawfish spray you can buy. Don't soak them more that an couple of hours or they will become too soft|

Well. I guess I'll give a fishing report.
My back was hurting bad enough that I didn't want to face the climb back up to my truck, so instead of high falls, we went back to the water dept lake, where I got one bite on nightcrawlers.
The rod bowed over and stayed, but even with a circle hook, it let go so I'm thinking big turtle.
I'm not going again until my back gets some rest.
So nothing exciting.

I have two heavy duty spinners and medium heavy rods for them, and if she learns to cast one of those, we'll go for bigger fish.
High falls has some big catfish very close to where we'll be fishing, and the eating size I'm after hang on the outskirts of the deep cover above the dam.
It's a large log jam right against the base of the dam.
My wife loves catfish so I'm really hoping she gets into it.

|casull||Bugeye, all you need to do is catch one or two bluegills on the worms and you'll have one of the best baits ever for catfish. Cut them bluegills up into 5 or 6 pieces and you'll catch cats, and bigger ones than you would on livers. Plus, it's a lot cleaner than dealing with livers.|

We did go to a water department lake where we didn't get a bite on strawberry hot dogs or chicken livers and rain ran us off early.
So, this coming Saturday (5-18-19) we are heading for High Falls lake.
It's supposed to be 89 degrees but we'll have a nice shady spot where I've caught a lot of fish in the past, both catfish and bluegills.
AND, THE ONLY BAIT WE'LL HAVE IS NIGHT CRAWLERS.
They'll catch anything.

Well momma kept insisting I spend a lot of money, so, I did some checking on a guided fishing trip and I ain't gonna pay $100 per hour plus tip for someone to take my fish off the hook.
So this afternoon I went to walmart and bought two Berkeley 7ft graphite casting rods (for my two spincast reels) and a bunch of hooks, lines, and sinkers.
I'm going to home depot in a day or two and get the wood and metal braces to build a stake-body for my little red wagon so I can haul more stuff down to the water.
So I'm happy with my birthday stuff, Jesus rose from the dead, what more could we want.

Good luck at the catfish hole!
