    Weird, I somehow got unsubscribed to my own thread

    Work has been kicking my ass lately, so SHOOTING some fish sounds like some sort of red neck stress reliever right now, lol.

    So I took the day off today to have my first three day weekend since 2009...and it's been raining ALL FREAKING DAY!

    It's the most rain we've had in quite some time, actually

    Alright, so I had a pretty fun week fishing last week. No monsters, but I caught quite the variety. I'll post some pix up later this week.

    Friday after work I caught what I'm told is a Rockbass (not a Rockfish) and a small Large Mouth Bass. On Saturday I caught probably close to two dozen Grey Snappers, a Red Grouper, a Sea Bass, and a Dogfish.

    Wait til I find my card reader and upload the pic of the dogfish. The first thing I thought when I caught it was, "I'm not touching that." Then I thought, "I can't wait to show this to Don!"

    I went fishing this morning, but after a short time I ran out of worms. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. "Frogs are good bass bait" I thought to myself.

    Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.
    Just then, I realized I had a problem, how was I going to release the snake without getting bit? So, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. The snakes eyes rolled back and he went limp. I released him into the lake without incident and carried on fishing using the frog.

    A little later, I felt a nudge at my foot. There was that same snake with two more frogs in his mouth.
    Life is good in the South.

    LOL, nice.

    Funny that you should post that. I really did have a small cottonmouth come right up on me last week while fishing near some weeds offshore! Some of you might know this snake as a water moccasin...not something to mess around with.

    I hate those things. My neighbor has crawfish ponds and those damn cotton mouths are also passing through my yard. One almost got my boxer when he was a puppy, I scooped him up just before he ran over the snake. That bad boy was c o c ked and ready to strike.

    If I had enough JD in me I would bite the damn snake.

    I was biking with my daughter on the sidewalk in my neighborhood. We just came over one of the wood bridges, I was in the lead by a couple hundred feet. I yelled "look out theres a snake" and pulled to a stop when I was 15-20 feet past it. As she got closer I yelled again "look out for the snake" and pointed to it. She ran it over of course. it was a cottonmouth. It stuck its head up for a minute in shock, and hightailed it for the woods. I was cracking up.

    Good thing you were that far ahead. First person startles it, second person gets bit.

    Sorry for the bad pictures. I had a hard time getting the hook out and was trying to get him back in the water ASAP. It fought pretty hard. I was for sure I had caught another yearling male large mouth bass.

    The red eye is throwing me off. It's hard to see in the pic, but it also had blue stripes on its face when the light hit it in various ways.

    I've been fishing since I was around 8 years old. The past 6 or so years though I haven't fished much. Mostly I like fishing for Small mouth bass. The best tasting fish I think is fresh water cat fish. I used to fish from sun up to sundown. Only stop to go to the bathroom, then back to the boat.

    That's along the lines of what I was thinking. I was guessing Shellcracker aka Redear Sunfish. Same family. I was just thrown off by the mouth. When I lived up north, the Sunnys had much smaller mouths.

    Agreed, sunfish all taste the same so it doesn't matter. Sunfish, crappie and catfish are the best eating in my book.

    I threw one back. I caught what was likely about a yearling Largemouth that day too. Oddly enough, I caught them both on the same homemade spinner

    I caught a lot of Crappie this season. I've never fished from them before and had no idea there was a panfish like the Crappie. They call them Speck or Papermouth here in Central Florida...and yes, they are pretty tasty. Come to think of it, I have caught Speck on the spinner that I mentioned above too, lol.

    Oh yes, Cracker barrel breakfast is THAT good! I end up eating 4 buttermilk biscuits after my meal every time I eat there.

    Yes,we do have a lot of big cats here in Oklahoma.Me and a friend have been catching a lot of channel cats,bluegill,crappie,largemou th,whitebass,and drums the last few weeks.
    OP,that is one scary damn catfish.I don`t know how I would react if I reeled something like that in.

    The thing you have to worry about these days though is is it safe to eat from the waters you catch from. There are a lot of safe places here in the woods but a lot of places in other states I wouldn't dare to eat the fish.

    I got 13 bass today on a fishing trip. Not a bad day. My buddy caught a 5lber. He is putting it on the wall. Told him not too, but its the biggest hes ever caught. I have caught plenty of 6 and 7lbers and never thought about putting them on the wall. But to each his own.
