That is definitely a boat load of fish. They are more fun to catch on the fishing pole though LOL.

how many filet knives did you go through cleaning all of those fish? I would call you a cheater, but its better to do it that way and not just let them die and stink up the place. I bet you are good at speed cleaning catfish by now. Thats a good haul :thumbs:

Could not have said it better myself!! There is a lot of good eatin in that boatload. Glad you could save most. And your right about losing them if you did not act.
The Drought has dropped levels in ponds up here to the point a lot of fish were killed due to the water getting too warm.

3-4 foot of clay and 10 ton of this http://www.jpself.com/bentonite.htm . we found the seep it was about 10' long 3' wide . there was silt and mud every where but in that area and it was sand and rock . theres still a good chance it wont work they said 60% chance .

They sure will. I hope you get the seep fixed right and get a new crop of fish going soon. In the mean time, enjoy your January and February. Thanks for those awesome photographs.

Totally in agreement over here! Crappie are on the top of my list. I can't say that out loud in Minnesota where the walleye is king, but I should be safe here.
Hope your friend's pond fix goes well.
