Details:Not as good of fishing as last weekend but still an okay day. a friend and i went to wilson lake last weekend, 9-24-11. we went out hoping to find maybe some walleye or striper. the weather was about 20 degrees warmer then the weekend before and so i think the fish scattered more. It took us a longer time to get into some fish. we fished the same areas as the week before and managed to catch some smallmouth bass first, but they were hard to find. we fished different area after not really catching anything on the south shore, so we tried the north side and hell creek area for about an hour or two without any luck, by this time it was getting about an hour or so from dark so we went back to the south shore and went farther back to the west, We were throwing slab spoons like the week before, well we were slowly working the south side in about 5 feet of water when my friend got a hit and pulled in a nice white bass. well about 10 minutes later he pulled in another white bass. well at this time i thought that he was going to catch all the fish and i wasn't going to catch any good keepers. well these are the only 2 keepers he caught. well by this time it was getting late and almost dark and i really didn't want to fish in the dark so i told him i was gonna make 1 or 2 more casts and then we will go. Well literally on my 1st cast i had something that hit my pole. I set the hook but it didn't budge, so at this time i thought that i got snagged. so i was yanking and pulling hard on the fishing rod at this time and couldn't get it to break loose, well i yanked again and felt something pull back so i knew i had a fish on. the problem was it had me in some weeds and it didn't want to budge. I tried not to pull to hard because i was only using ten pound test but i finally managed to get the fish out of the weeds and bring this thing up to the boat, my friend had the net ready to bring it in. Well we got the fish into the boat to find out that i had just caught a 26"- 5 pound channel cat. this was alright. well this was the end to our fishing trip so we loaded the boat and went home to clean some fish. Hoping to do it again this next week and hope to find some walleye and striper, but only time will tell.
