Got out and partied with the wife for my B-day. We had 3 key ingredients that practically guarantee a good time: Beers, Bikinis, and Bluecats! We got bait easy in 33 ft. There were big Buffalo all around where I dropped and I hit one or 2 on all 3 throws. We fished a hump in 17 ft and stayed busy all evening catching eaters and dinks. We ended up with 30 and made for a good B-day . Feeling blessed and very fortunate at 47. Can’t wait until Sunday Father’s Day fishing with my son. After Sunday’s trip were gonna switch things up and target some rough fish for a change so we can catch some drag burners.

By the way, I have caught those dang buffalo a lot lately and they are hard on cast nets. Last one I caught yesterday tore a big hole in my last good net! Time to place an order...

Happy Birthday!

Cut them buffalo up... They make good bait.
I fished for a few hours Sat morning. Had fresh shad chicken bluegill and buffalo. Buffalo was best and shad second .

Thanks Amigos! I catch those big Buffalo all year long out of 2 of my deep Shad holes Tim. Buffalo like the same rocky area big Gizzards do. They are definitely hard on the net especially when you net 4 or 5 20lbrs at once! I use em occasionally for bait if I can’t get my preferred baits Ken but chopping one up isn’t much fun.

When you get into the big cats this winter, put out a 5 pound piece of buffalo. You obviously have the catfish thing down, but you need to catch an 80 to 100 pound cat. roflmao And I want to see the picture when Jaxon catches it.

You need chainsaw to filet one of those things. I've only ever caught one at a time. I can't imagine what 4 of em would do to your net. My new menhaden net is due to arrive tomorrow. Both of my old nets have so many knots tied in them they are starting to change color to the braid I used to mend them. I think I'll get a couple more while the gettin is good. Especially the taped net. Once the weather gets cold, they will be hard to find again I'm sure.

I bought a serrated Bubba Blade several years ago just for Carp and Buffs Tim. I’m a lot more willing to cut steaks with that thing. I’m about to order me another Fitec net too buddy but I won’t break it out until I get serious about catching big fish again in October. I keep a pile of old cast nets in my shop that I pull out of and repair for spring and summer fishing. When that cool rain hits the lake in October, my nets are new, my string is fresh, and my hooks are new and upsized. Right now my nets are tattered, my string is old and faded, and my hooks are dull from catching 1000 eaters this spring.

Haha... Same here Chris. It seems like I'm always waiting for the next phase. Right now my nets are in bad shape, I'm using 5/0 hooks, my reels are low on line from snagging and breaking off, I need an oil change and a good power wash. I will take care of all that by the end of September and be ready to do battle come cool weather in October. I will have new nets, new line, new terminal tackle and everything else I need to set myself up for success.

We’re due for one over 70 Barry. We’ve gotten at least 1 in the 60s last 3 yrs in a row. I’ve hooked 2 that we’re over 70 but lost both. One of them was on Lewisville 2 January’s ago and that is the only time I’ve been spooled by a Blue. That fish hit like I snagged a car passing by. Couldn’t stop it, couldn’t turn it, all I could do is watch my line get stripped until it was gone. Whole thing lasted all of about 30 seconds. I dream about that fish all the time.

I’ve been rigging up a 4 lb Carp head when I go to Twok . Not the head of a 4 lb carp but a head that weighs 4 lbs. When I go to Texoma I use a huge slab of Striper. They don’t ’t get much action but when that rod goes down you know it’s a good one. Jaxon is finally big enough to go hard all winter so we’ll finally be travel fishing which gives us a much better chance at finally landing a super fish.

I think about Texoma blue cats all the time since the previous short lived US record was caught there. Would love to see it happen again!!

I've fished with Cody Mullinex, the guy who held that record. I learned a lot from him. He is a great fisherman and a class act. I believe that fish is still the Texas stae record blue cat. 121 pounds if memory serves...
