    Default A Little Catfishing This Morning On The Santee River...

    Was going to be HOT today, so we went where we could fish in the shade. Caught small Cats to the point it was more work than fun. Red was using a hand line for the first time ( something me and friends did a lot when I was 12 years old ) and had a good time fighting in a few on it, saying " this is so weird " feeling the strike with your fingers.

    Caught them on pieces of Deer heart from one of her Deer last season, and they really liked it.

    Kept enough for dinner tomorrow, and tossed back many more.

    We had a bet as to who caught the smallest...I lost.

    Good lookin water!

    Its good to see someone using the old Pflueger spinning reels I tested years ago. Its one tuff reel!! Put a LOT of big reds in the boat with them!

    The only bad thing I can remember was the finish they put on'em.

    She has 4 of those reels. Two on light action rods and two on ultra-lite rods. Love em. Plan to switch out some of my older reels with them too.

    Made Momma happy bringing some home for dinner, for a change. We release everything when fishing the Edisto. Wife says that's like checking out at the grocery store, with an empty cart...

    I get that a lot. I you fish a lot it is easy to catch way more fish than you can use. Catch and release is a good practice. I donít keep bass but keep crappie and catfish to eat. Big cats usually go back too.
