The Gone Fishin Club Dock

What is the Dock?

The Gone Fishin Club Dock is a place where you can come and share your fishing stories, see what other people are fishing for, ask questions, and possibly meet other fishermen from your area. I have tried several forums for this and none seemed to work well and I love HubPages so I decided to try it here.I have several catfishing Hubpages already but none really for all kinds of fishing questions and sharing other kinds of fishing pictures so this will be the home or dock as I like to call it for that. You can still send your fishin pictures and stories to me at gary at gonefishinclub.com just change that to an email format. Look forward to seeing you here!

Great catfish, Gary. I like your idea of an online place where fishing enthusiasts can gather and swap stories.

I live in the Pacific Northwest and love to fish for steelhead - both winter and summer runs. One summer, I was fishing for trout and saw a nice steelhead jumping. He wouldn't go for any of my lures, so I managed to snag a crawdad down in the pool and use him for bait.

I switched to a #10 bait hook and buried it in a chunk of peeled crawdad tail about the size of my thumbnail. It took three casts

to place the bait in front of that fish, but he took it and made sizzling runs up and down the pool before I could coax him into shore, where

I grabbed him by the gills.

I didn't think I would get him in, but he plumb wore himself out . I was using 4 pound test line so the odds were against me. He was a bright buck of 7 pounds. My lucky day.

Andyglean, Thanks for your question. I know Ray Hubbard is not that far away but not sure if that might be the lake your friends house is on or not. Either way I will go with some of the all time great baits. Liver is always a great start with channel cats and some blues. Cut bream chunks the size of quarters (25 cents) work well. From there cut up night crawlers work well too. If you find out there are big catfish I would go with some whole live bream either under a big bobber or on a carolina rig. On the big bobber you will see him drag it slowly around, if it starts jumping wildly, get ready, watch it close, as soon as it goes under like a submarine start reeling if using circle hooks, if regular hooks set the hook then reel it in! Hope this help and you catch a big mess of catfish! You can find more catfishing info here:

Good Luck out there.
