Jugged the 22-31 feet water around the mouth of Caney Creek.

Hooks set from two feet under surface to bottom. Fish caught throughout the water column. Thermocline was at 18 feet. Bait was live perch, cut shad, and FNF Ultra Cutbait. All three worked well.

The following were cpr'd and one other fish was caught and released but somehow not photo'd.

Didn't catch a lot of fish by Conroe standards but we cpr'd more than usual and had five or six #'s of fillets when all was said and done so we couldn't complain.

Amen to that... it looks like you guys had a great night. I'm thinking about rigging up some of those jugs to give that kind of fishing a try... I'll get NightTrain to show me how it's done, and then decide if it's my kind of fishing...

Hey Hawkeye

The rain wouldn't bother me that much, you know the old saying of "melting versus floating away"? but all my good spots have logs floating down the river. They are running an AVERAGE of 125,000 CFS (normal generation this time of the year is 45,000 CFS) through Pickwick, so even if the logs weren't there, you couldn't fish the way I do very efficiently. Besides, the boss got me working too hard to enjoy it. I would be wanting to nap. LOL

Brewjr, Good catch bud. Keep up the work and we might wash all that saltwater out of you yet. LOL

The catfishing in central Texas always is best after a t&$d-floater rain. I don't know if it's the higher lake levels, the extra current, or all the extra food items being washed in. I haven't fished Conroe since I was a youngster, I grew up there, and it was a brand-new lake. Sounds like it may be worth the drive. Good job guys, I'm drooling for some catfish like that. I have never jugged at night, do you mark them with those light-sticks or something?

A bud gave me some of those light-stick bracelets and they work great. I need to buy me some more.

I have reflective tape around the tops of the jugs and the q-beam lights em up. With the night sticks you can run the jugs with nothing else but a headlight.
