John,

I would give my left arm to have one of those days back when the kids where that small. Being 52 and my kids in early 20's, I dont get days like that anymore. Lately its been a little bit of the "Cats in the Cradle" syndrome for me. 

Cherish those times, Dad.

Peace and Good fishing to all,

Lar

p.s. Primus is going to be in Milwaukee in August.

Hi All!

If you're even 1/2 way into catching channel cats, below the Petenwell Dam in Central WI is the GO TO spot right now! Shoreline fished for 2 1/2 hrs with 2 others this AM and CPR-ed 14 channel cats on Sonny's dip and sucker minnows... A TOTAL BLAST! :-)

Medium tackle, slip sinker rig, and willingness to CPR Bunches 'O Cats!!! (aka FUN!!!)

Tight Lines!

Ralph :-)

PS Gotta have fun fishermen to idolize...("Go Jeremy Wade!!!")     ;-p

"Gates below the dam are wide open again!" Water is really on the rise with all this rain,Last few days. Water is back up in the parking lot off the hwy 21 bridge launch. Water was not in parking lot below dam, Things could change in a few hours.

Give it a few days to calm down before launching below the dam. I don't think i have ever seen the water moving this fast below the dam. Its even loud around the 21 bridge launch!

Good luck,be safe
