I’d have to agree.

Think I’d rather mow fairways, collars and approaches. Of which I’ll be doing one or the other at 6:30 tomorrow morning.

But, I’ll be fishing Thursday morning. Have some “punch bait” for catfish. Stinky god awful nasty stuff. I wear PPE when handling it.  I’m gonna set up a second rod and see if I can catch some cats and carp.

Water is cooling and they’re getting more active. Could be a mixed bag of fun.

Nice mirror! I took a walk down to my carp hole on Sunday. Still a few weeks away. Water is still too low.

Couple decent carp this morning.





Got one channel cat. Small one. When I was reeling in the carp rig a pike ( of all things) hit the piece of silicone corn. It was probably 24”. Thing thrashed around after I got the hook out and it slid down the bank into the water. Now my net stinks. Ordered a second bait feeder reel to set up another carp/catfish rod.I’m impressed with the Kastking Sharky III. it’s been flawless for a budget reel.

Also ordered a big bottle of the ProCure Sweet Corn Gel. The stuff is like magic.  Headed to Wally World to pick up another 9’ Ugly Stick Catfish rod. Like I “need” yet another rod…..Love the one I’ve been using.

Well, today anyway. Back to mowing fairways tomorrow, have to fix what the newbie did Tuesday. Saturday is another story.

Went 2 for 3 this morning.




Top fish was a slug. 28” maybe 20#.

While I was setting up the carp rig I shot some pack bait into my area. Launched out the method feeder and hair rig and was adjusting the rod in the alarm when I had a huge hit. Hadn’t set the bait runner yet and it snapped the line. 30 lb braid. Lost the feeder, hair rig and fish. Good thing I was actually holding the rod. Probably would have lost that too.

Beautiful morning!

Ugh!!!!
Ordered the wrong reel. Thanks to Amazon it’s no problem. They already sent a shipping code. All I have to do is take the reel to a ups store and show them the code. Don’t have to package it or anything. Free returns. Correct reel is on the way.


My bad.

4 for 4 this morning.
Set up at sunrise. Beautiful morning! First fish was about 3 minutes in.








 This one was a fat one. Really thick in the middle.




Nothing really huge but a fish every half hour just about by the clock.
Would have stayed but my method feeder came apart and I didn’t feel like rigging up again. I’ll fix it at home and re-rig.

Fun morning carpin’.
