nice cats and thanks for the report!

I must say though that it was pretty daring of you to wear a shirt like that in grand forks....

Last night was top 3 best catfishing days i have experienced. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! The cats were biting! There was a beautiful sunset and a bright nearly full moon. We said it many times last night that it really doesn't get any better than this!

A buddy from GF and i got down to the cat cove around 5:30 and started fishing the current seam with fresh cut sucker minnows and it was ON right away! We both caught 3 cats before we could even finish the first beer! Nothing huge right away but some decent cats. We pounded away at them for about an hour and i realized that we certainly didn't have enough sucker minnows for a bite like that....

Luckily there were some younger fellows just upriver fishing for walleyes so i went over to talk to them hoping that they would catch a goldeye for me and they had three on a stringer already and let me take one.

The suckers ended up lasting us until close to dark, we did something last night that i never use to do and that was using the sucker minnow heads, it actually worked pretty well and i caught my 2 biggest with a sucker head. Right around sunset we had to cut the goldeye up and it slowed down considerably. We didn't catch any for a good half hour and thought that maybe they weren't in the mood for goldeye...

Boy were we wrong! Once the sun was good and down and it was pretty dark they started hammering again on the goldeye. We ended up fishing until midnight and caught fish right up until then. I had to call it quits when i pulled my last cat in just before midnight as i had an hour drive to get home and had to be to work this morning.

We ended up catching cats in all different sizes from probably a pound to over 20 pounds. Our best guess is we caught somewhere between 30 and 40 cats last night. The biggest being 34, 34.5 and 36 inches. My scale wasn't working so i couldn't get a weight on them but in my experience those three were all in the 20 pound ballpark. We also managed to get a carp that was about 15 pounds up on the bank and a sheephead that was about 8 pounds. I also had another cat that was right in that 34-36" range up on shore but he slipped back in the water when trying to get a grip and got away.

That was definitely a night I will never forget! I don't have the capability of getting the pictures up right now but will try later today.

Thanks for the report! I came on here to write a post to see what they have been biting on as i am heading over there to fish tonight and you answered my question without me asking!

I was over on saturday afternoon for about an hour, my wife and i had 6 bites and landed 2 ten pounders on fresh cut suckers. will most likely try the same tonight.

I have one pheasant left from last fall and would like to cook it tonight. It is skinned and gutted. I have done a stuffed pheasant in the oven that was very good but would like to try something different with this one. I thought about beer can pheasant but all the recipes call for a bird with skin intact. I would appreciate any recipes/tips for grilling pheasant.

I also have a mallard that i plucked at the end of the season last year, i wonder how beer can duck would be.....

the suffix 832 is a great line. I use it on all my walleye rods.

I also use power pro on my catfish rod, but only because I had to buy 50 lb test because everything lighter than that breaks on snags too easily.

I don't think you can go wrong with either, I stick with the 832 on my walleye rods though just because I have had good luck with it and don't have a reason to switch

LoganFish,

I have hunted middle to end of may many times. Its really the same as it is early season from my experience. find the birds and call them in. They have never seemed to be harder to call in for me but it could be because they hadn't been pressured for a while. My other theory is that they are getting desperate to find mates since it is towards the end of the breeding season. Good Luck!
