Here is our fishing trip video from Halloween. Wind was out of the East and we struggled to locate fish the first hour. Lost 2 toads and caught 15 eaters. I’m trying to post more graph pics in the videos and also try and explain more what we are doing. We’re on a 3 week dink streak but that is all about to change. Thanks for watching guys and don’t forget to hit subscribe and help us grow. We blew past 200 subscriptions pretty quick so I’m going to hold a drawing for subscribers December 1st. Will be giving away 8/0 offset octopus circle hooks and decals, Driftmaster rod holders, and an Abu Garcia C3 6500 Bluecat Special. Subscribe and leave me a comment on one of the videos of you want in on the drawing for the Abu, driftmasters, or circle hook packs with decals.

Bravo!!!

That video is the best yet by far imo, and kudos for posting the depths and the graphs plus the explanation - very helpful for n00bs like moi..

I can see where your son gets the 'action' name from.

I see your rod rest set up and have gear envy, but all the stuff would probably sink my little tin boat - lol.

Cool video Chris. How are you liking those Madkatz rods? What action did you get? How does the action compare to the WS?

Thanks amigos! Fishing was tough but I like showing guys how we fish when conditions are less than ideal.

Loving these Mad Katz rods Matt! These MH are built for Trophy Fishing 100 lbrs and no doubt can handle any catfish in the lake. The MH action is a little stiffer than WS MH. I’m going to get a set of Medium action from Mad Katz real soon and will let you know what I think. These Mad Katz rods have taken the catfish industry by storm and when you get one in your hands you’ll know what all the hype is about. Toughest most well built rods I’ve seen. You won’t find 1 bad or negative comment about them anywhere. Hope to test em out on some 50lbrs this weekend! My buddy Jimmy has owned just about every rod you can imagine and Mad Katz are his instant favorite over all others! They are that good! [Linked Image]

Awesome Chris. I have been looking at them. Maybe santa will bring me one. I was looking at either the medium or the med/lite. I don't like real still rods for lake fishing. The WS is heavy enough for my liking. We have hauled in cats up 69# on the Ugly stick catfish rods and the ProAngler mediums. Plus they are still fun when you catfish box fish.

Good luck this weekend. If I was not going to the deer lease then I would meet you out there. Lets make it happen this winter. Paxton really wants to meet Jaxon. He was mad when we didn't go the the get together you put on.

Thanks Matt…I hear the Med and ML are very similar. I’m getting the M because we don’t have a ton of Giants in my lake and I think the MH was built for big fish.

We’ll definitely get together this winter. My wife showed me our December schedule last night and it’s got a bunch of kids birthday party’s as well as my wife’s and Jaxon’s birthday so the schedule is gonna be tight for travel fishing. I will probably take off a day either on a Friday or a Monday and come fish down there a couple of days. Will look at the calendar again tonight and see what days I might be able to come fish and let ya know.

Sounds good bud. If December doesn't work we always got Jaunuary and Feburary, those are 2 of my favorite months to fish, probably because deer season is over. HAHA

My Mad Catz rods shipped today! I should have em in 3 or 4 days... Can't wait to try em out.

I also had some issues with reels lately. I had a catastrophic failure of one of my Lew's Speed Cast 600 reels last weekend. I was looking for a replacement, I have a slime cat reel and the jury is still out on it. It was prone to hanging up when I first got it but I think I have the kinks worked out of it now. I bought a Sougayilang Rover 600 size. Sougayilang Rover 600 It reminds me a lot of the Kast King Rovers, in fact the Slime Cat does too. I use my reels hard. As you guys know I am out there every weekend and then some. The limit seems to be about 2 years. After that I start having issues. Maybe I need to bite the bullet and get some Abu Garcia or some other higher end reels. My issue with Abu is you never know what your getting. They have cheap chinese [censored] like all the others now so why bother?

We'll see how these two new contestants do but I'm guessing they will last about as long as everything else has...

Tim I'm sure Chris has told you about the Shimano Tekotas. He probably brought a few when yall fished together. They are the best reel I have tried for big cats. I only have 1 but as my abu's wear out I will be changing over. They are pretty pricey but they are great. Michael Littlejohn has been using them for years and they stand up to the abuse they put them thru on the big cats and in the saltwater. They have a lot of power and a big handle for cranking in planer boards also.

My only complaint about them is they are heavy on the handle side so my rods tend to turn in the rod holders. I wish more rod companies would put gimbals on their rods and then they wouldn't turn.
