    My son caught this blue cat on a live tilapia so itís not a fly catch, but it was fun to see him having so much

    Fly or not, that's a nice cat

    Good to see a young man out there doing as he should, but you might want to get him a bigger net for X-mas. Looks like he has tendencies toward the larger end of the catch continuum.

    I felt like I had to get on my stomach to make sure I got the fish’s head in the net. That done, then the challenge was getting the fish on the deck from the prone position, it took about all the horsepower I had.

    The catfish put up a nice battle. My son would get him pretty close to the dock and then it would run off some line. This back and forth went on for a while. Catfish measured 41” and bottomed out my 30# boga grip. It probably was about 35# based on the length to weight calculators and boga. The tilapia we used was pretty big, longer than my hand. I told my son it might be too big of bait, but if we did get something, it would be something to remember. We released the fish to grow even bigger.

    Now if I can figure out how to tie a fly that would do the trick.

    Lunchtime bluegill on a black size 6 Bugger I tied Sunday. Bluegill are in short supply in this lake so it's always nice to see one.

    Lunchtime shellcracker fell for a gray clouser. Got a bonus bass on the next cast that spit the hook. Gray day, gray fly.

    Another redear sunfish atop my daughter's art project in the works. This might be the biggest redear for me yet.
