Went snatching yesterday. I had to leave early because i had to get ready to go to prom :oops: I didnt hook into anything but a skipjack and a shad. My dad caught a pretty good asian carp. More bait for next trapping season :mrgreen:

Post subject:  Re: End of Season

ive heard about snatching but what is it exactly. a trotline tied to a big treble hook like on swamp people. & do u just throw it blindly in the water or is it a spot & stalk method. ive still been bowfishing & now that the water is in the fields its been great. next sat, we was thinking of using a gig or cast net on the gar. just to do something different. lol i love fishing without rod & reels. heres some we got last wed. off the bridge-19 & sat. out in fields 20+. i even shot 2 with 1 arrow that was cool. my cousin did it a couple weeks ago but now ive caught up. lol

Went to the TFTA spring meeting the other day. Wasn't a very big turn out but i got to talk to some other TN trappers and hear some interesting stories. Learned a little bit too :D Also bought sone drowning cables, snares, and a bottle of fish oil in the fund raising auction.

Today i set a snare to catch a groundhog out of a neighbors shed. Trapping never stops around here :mrgreen:

Post subject:  Re: End of Season

I went bowfishing last night. Didnt go so well :oops: Im starting to think that its not for me lol. we just dont have a good enogh boat or lights. I did see a few muskrat, I know where im going to have some traps set when season opens :--D As far as fishimg goes, I havent done much. I have tried skipjack fishing for catfish/trap bait, but i havent caught many.

I planted the dove field the other day. Hope everything has a good turn out this year. I look forward to dove season every year about as much as trapping season. I have also been trying to get everything together for my hunting trip to africa next month. I just need to go get the shots now :shock:
