On the spur of the moment I decided to go fishing last night at about an hour before sundown. Drove down to the mighty Mizzou to my fave spot and cast in with nightcrawlers I caught a couple of nights before. Since I started out in a hurry I had to use one of the old Penn reels that would be good for surf fishing with little current but not-so-great for the fast river current. I also needed heavier weights. Still, I did manage to catch a 1/2 lb. channel cat which was too small to keep. I want one about 5 to 10 pounds so I can smoke it and make Empanadas. I went out last night and picked up over a dozen more crawlers and will try again tonight better equipped.
