We're goin to Kentucky lake next weekend, so my dad, me and my two dogs went out to the K3 on saturday for a few hours of fishing and just to make sure the boat was running good for Kentucky. We launched at the state park off of Arsenal just west of I-55 and headed back towards 55 to the railroad bridge where we've had luck in the past. I tossed the castnet for a bit until i picked up a few decent sized shad to use as cut bait. So we anchored inbetween the two RR bridges and rigged up our poles (carolina rigged) with a 4/0 gamakatsu octopus wide gap and 1 ounce egg sinker and a chunk of fresh cut shad. About an hour into it with no action, my pole got slammed, and the fight was on. after a few minutes and a fun fight a large tired out channel cat surfaced. He weighed out at 11lbs 1oz on my digi scale, and is my biggest cat to the day, 9lbs being before that. I wish i had a better camera but i had to use my phone camera. But it was the icing on the cake on this short excursion and also was a warm beautiful fall day. Here's the pics, i hope they upload correctly. Tight lines everyone!

Excellent fish pondslayer and a great day to get out.

Is it time to change that avatar to one of those pics?

Let me know and I'll take care of it.
