    A bat in the house.

    my old tournament dip net with the extended handle would have been much easier to use, and probably would have caught it before the dog pissed.

    thanks Bo for the detailed explanation! It makes it a lot easier to visualize your techniques. There is more detailed information in your answers than in 99% of any fishing article I have ever read.

    Bo - what size line do you use to help feel the lure in 60 feet of water? I assume you make about a 100 foot cast, peel off line to get it to the bottom? 160 feet of line out to begin with. 50+ yards of line. And when you get snagged, do you get directly over the bait to retrieve it? Just trying to visualize fishing that deep and maintaining contact and feel.

    Not only is Toledo Bend big, 180,000 acres, it has massive shallow areas(called flats) that are shallower than 20 feet which makes for a tremendous amount of habitat for largemouth.

    well, it is obvious. Stock Florida largemouth and Minnesota smallmouth.

    Giant mutant goldfish caught (102 lbs.)

    is it legal to shoot goldfish?

    wouldn't a longer length be a better indicator of a fish's age? Making it older and wiser and more difficult to catch, thus making the person with a longer fish a "better" angler?

    about how many "under" fish do you catch in an average day on these lakes?

    the lake is summed up pretty well by Al and Bushbeater. In October the lake will still be at summer pool. The main channel between Chaonia(cabins available) and the dam(several places to stay in this area) is marked by buoys in the middle of the channel. Above Chaonia follow another boat a time or two to learn the channel. October is usually pretty tough fishing, unless there is water moving through the dam which is pretty rare. A good starting point is to chase the wind on the lower half of the lake and throw rattle traps and small cranks. usanglerschoice.com holds a series of tourneys each year so you can get some ideas on weight. 15+ usually wins, but 5 fish limits weighing 5 to 8 lbs are the norm. Yet MDC says no length limit is needed.

    bassmaster.com has day 1 info from the Open Championship. 15+ is leading, but weights fall off fast. Be sure to click on the blog. Good pics and info.
