Capt. Paul, what do you think of the Standard Mapping chips you can buy for about $70 which show the various map areas on you combo unit (Lowrance hds-5)

Yesterday evening I threw a left over live shrimp out off the dock (IN Eden Isles) and put the rod in a rod holder. About a half hour later my wife says 'the cork is gone!' She grabs the rod a starts reeling saying it's something big. She handed it over to our 8 yr old who brought it up to the dock and up comes an 18 lb freshwater catfish! I took some pictures and let it go. I need to learn how to post pictures.

Best bang for your buck in my opinion are the Daiwa BG series and /or the Penn Battle II series. I have some BG's that are 20 yrs old and still work fine. Jury is still out on the Battles....

I don't know how you guys can afford all those $50-60000 plus boats! I have a 1998 Hydra sport V-Hull that I paid $18000 for boat,motor,and trailer. I have since put 2 new motors on it and it does just fine. I gave up on buying a new one after shopping around and seeing what they cost. Must be nice!!

you can use a 3-way swivel and just tie each jig head separately using fluorocarbon leader line to the desired length....the swivel helps with tangles

When the trout are hitting live shrimp I have a pole rigged with a yellow and white shad rig that I switch to and they love it....sometimes catch bigger trout

Well, I guess that really narrows it down....that only covers about 600 square miles!

If you are going to post a report, at least say what state or country you caught the fish in! Otherwise why even post????

Bite the bullet and go to Delacroix...you can at least catch reds if not trout and reds. I know it's longer and more expensive but it is usually worth the trip, especially at this time of year.

A comment titled: Old Faithful in response to a report titled: Your favorite bait?

All the new lures work great...but don't forget the old reliable white/yellow shad rig under a cork! For you old-timers who remember Phil Sensebee R.I.P....he used to launch at Rudy Melerine's and catch 1000's of trout using only shad rigs. I finally talked him into trying the 'new' lure that was out...the chartreuse beetle! Go Figure!
