I am not trying to sound like a jerk here but when do you guys talk about catfishing. I was trying to get some advice about going to sommerville tomorrow an all anyone is talking about are hats. I thought this was a forum to learn about great texas fishing?

I never fished Summerville either, but I have caught a few dozen cottonmouths and canebrakes on the Edisto River near Summerville... I'm sorry, but I don't have any hats for sale.

The Texas & World record was 121 lbs. 8 oz. and it was an incredible catch, and IS a beautiful fish... I've seen the pictures of her swimming in the huge tank they have for display at the TP&W HQ ... Our state record was just broken twice this year, and although it's still nearly twenty pounds short of the Texas/world record @ 92 pounds it was a pretty big catfish.

I'm one of the rookies here... the pros are out fishing. I'm nursing a sore back and a broken boat motor....

sorry about the back. was it related to the broken motor? sounds like a bummer. i have been fishing since i was 5. thats 14 years now. still kind of a rookie on the big waters till i can afford a boat. or at least some more time off work!!
p.s. my granparents now reside in Palmyra, VA. virginia is some good looking country!!

Naw.... the sore back is related to the crashed car... long story, as is the broken boat. I'll be fine soon, I'm sure... went and has xrays Friday to make sure nothing is broken in the back, and if they check out, I'm going to get the chiropractor to re-arrange a few bones and take care of strained (I hope) muscles. The motor was "rebuilt" and broke the crank after about 30 minutes running time... I guess I'll never trust a "rebuild" again, unless I see it done, or do it myself.

I've never been to Palmyra, Va. but most of Virginia, North Carolina, Tenn., Kentucky and the rest of the states bordering on the Blue Ridge, share some beautiful landscape. My only complaint, if I had one, would be the hurricanes.... I love just about everything else about where we live. Waverly is a lot closer to the ocean than it is to the mountains, so it's more or less flat with a feew little hills around here... still very pretty, especially in the spring..... If you get up here to visit, you'll have to let me know. Maybe we can arrange to take you catfishing.....

I will definitley take you up on that offer. I have been meaning to head back that way. Like wise if you ever stumble in around Cypress, TX (close to houston). we also have a grade A saltwater fishery.

I'm lucky like that too... the Chesapeake Bay, lower James River and Atlantic Ocean are just an hour or two driving distance from me, so we enjoy some good "bluewater" fishing too. NightTrain lives about an hour and fifteen minutes to the South of me, on Lake Gaston, and there's a heck of a lot of good fishing to be had on Gaston and Buggs Island lakes too.... I live half a mile from the Nottoway River, which has been flooded almost constantly for three years now, and it is a great freshwater fishery for bass, bream and cats too... if and when I can get out there and the water doesn't look like chocolate milk... keep us in mind, and when you visit I'll do what I can to put you on some fish. I don't believe there's a trip to Texas in my immediate future, but I'll do the same, should I get the chance to pay the Lone Star State a visit.....

Fishin'fritts,
I can't help ya on Lake Sommerville, but here on Lake Conroe, all is well,
Here are some pics from this past saturday night.

This was Jerry's first time jugging. On his first night out he became a member of the Lake Conroe CPR Club, with a 11# blue..Jerry and his son ended up with 29, one at 9lbs and the one 11.2 CPR.
Justin was the NET-MAN and what a job he did.

Summer time cats

Fishin'fritts,
I can not tell you how to locate cats in sommerville from the bank this time, but during the spring there is a state park off of 36 i think that is perfect for cats. I cant remember the name of the park but it might not be a bad place to try during the summer either. They have a fishing peir that extends out a good ways to get you to some deeper water. from what i understand there is really good catfishing there too. when i went i was in search of white bass and crappie. we did fish a point in the primitive camp grounds at night that produced 7 cats from 2 to 8 lbs. That was alot of fun on ultra lite bass gear with 6 lb test. If you have a boat just find the river channel near some structure and bait it up with some range cubes. You might try below the sommerville ****, but i dont know if you can fish down there.
I fish the san jac river at the 59 bridge and do well during the spring, caught a 15 to 20 lbs flat head, but have not caught a fish there since early june.

Josh
