Re: Had another great night
I was use a 9 wt. system on the Red. This is a small backwater area that is full of forage. The fly was a brown DDH Leech. Along with the Cats and Carp I caught Sauger, White Bass and Goldeye. Of course these fish don't put up a fight on a 9 wt. but when you fish the Red you go down with the heaviest system you can.
As for the fight of these big Cats bring a reel with at least 150 yards of backing. I've been sppoled a couple of times.
