So today I had some time between watching the jays and dinner so I went to the local creek/river that runs
By my backyard. There was a lot of action braking the water but looked like smaller brown cats with a few really large ones. I fished for about 2 hours and here is the outcome

6 brown catfish ranging in size but nothing bigger then 11 inches
12 or so bass ( rock bass and largemouth)
4 sunfish ( pumpkinseed and green sunfish)


Sorry that the pics are upside down

Looks like good action, for a fun challenge, try a bare hook next time, move it in the water as though it were an insect. Sweeping, jigging, skitting along the surface.

Wow man im so jealous! All I got in my backyard for fishing is a sewer drainage creek full of slimy minnows, still better than nothing right? As far as Brown Bullheads go, 11 inches is not too bad of a fish, almost eating size and they can be quite tasty!

Yea I hear that they are good for eating never really tried it though. But from what I seen yesterday there are some monsters in the water there but they could be channel cats. Have you ever tried eating those?
