    Limit of gills today. 15 feet down in 20-25 foot of water. Gulp minnows were the ticket.

    checked on stocking for cats and actually fewer ...3500...but bigger over 8 inches

    also checked on trout stocking on Farwell and found out it was stocked a month later than normal and they was inch smaller so wondering if that is why not getting limit catches ?....anyone actually been doing good ?

    Last time I was on Gillette's, a month ago, I caught a few 10 - 12" Channel Cats on micro-jigs tipped with waxxies under a float. Sure put a nice bend in my light-power panfish rod.

    Last year, I saw several kitty fish, and they were all about that same size. I'm assuming there are bigger ones in there. I just haven't tried fishing for any.

    I have no idea on the Trout. I have yet to actually wet a line in Farwell. Paddled my kayak in it for a few minutes early this year.

    Nice bass and cat! I've been wanting to get out there and go for cats, but my new first shift schedule doesn't make that easy. Plus, now I'm prepping up for bow season.

    went out last night a few hours before dark found some cats 10 ft of water, got some minnows this time, but really the keepers was scattered as every time I moved I got one or two keepers so I ended with around 8-9 . Getting ready to clean them now .
    Did have one gill I kept but another gill I had on A VERY LARGE PIKE WAS SLASHING AT IT !!! ...wow it was awesome to see !
    wish right then I had a few small gills for bait!

    I tangled with *something* big a couple weeks ago on Michigan Center. From the little bit I saw of the fish, I want to say big Pike, but the water temp was about 72, which is a little warm for Pike, right? 5 FOW, in weeds, so maybe?

    I've got a supply of live minnows right now; I've been trying to find some Yellow Perch. Ended up catching a couple half-decent Crappie on Tuesday.
