June 26, 2014 -Leavenworth Area Farm Pond - My name is Callie Seber, I will be 8 years old on July 1. I live in Leavenworth, KS. I fish with my dad. I use minnows and worms. I like fishing because I’m with my dad.
I collect rocks and shells. My pole is purple and I have one that is green. Sometimes I stick my feet in the water. We look for crawldads, That’s what we do. We catch crappie and catfish.
This is my fish story, attached is my photo of a crappie I caught at a farm pond.
May 18, 2011 - Walnut River near Winfield - My son Caiden age 7 cought this striper on may 3rd in the walnut river in Winfield Ks. This was his first catch for 2011 and his biggest catch ever. He faught the fish for roughly 10+ minutes with a zebco combo using 10lb berkley trilene. So far he is ahead of me this year and says he plans on staying that way but needs a better rod and reel to do it with since he is so big now. I enjoy to see kids getting out and showing their pictures of there catches on kansasangler.com good to see our future is in good angler hands! Sincerely.

- This is fishing report "part one" for
a Private Pond in Jefferson County for the week following July
4th. The photos attached show some bass that my daughters and
father caught with grandpa's "magic" worm. The secret
to their success is the weedless Bass Stopper Magnum, natural
color. We found that the bass were taking the lure two and three
hooks deep on these pre-rigged worms, so we removed the trailing
is fishing report "part two" for a Private Pond in
Jefferson County for the week following July 4th. Attached are

September 6, 2006 - Pond
Fishing - 9-1-06 - After an exceptional day of dove
hunting, we wound up the day by some catfishing. Frogs usually
are the ticket on this pond but they just couldn't resist the
Sonny's dip bait.Caught 2 in just 10 minutes! Something they
hadn't had before I suspect. This was my son's favorite part
of the trip!
24, 2006 - Cheney - . Monday.
Had close to a excellent evening, finally. Came up with my first
Kansas Striper of the year, finally. Found a few humps holding
what looked like shad right on the bottom. Once me and my daughter
both reeling in at the same time. All on the Westside of lake.
Total catch was one Striper, two Wipers, one catfish, one keeper
Walleye, two Walleye throw backs. Nice evening with my 11 year
old daughter. Mark.
9, 2006 - Cheney - June 09,2006,
Friday. Did some P.M. fishing. At first it was slow had to move
around. Kept on the Westside do to the wind was high. Found them
North a ways from Sailboat Cove and kept at it. Caught around
12 Wipers. Boys had fun. One other boat out with us just catching
them left and right. Mark
May 15, 2006 - El
Dorado - It had been a few years since fishing Eldorado
and we had a good time there again. The wind was out of the north
and it really tested my trolling motor and my patience. My partner
Paul hooked up with the first fish, a nice keeper walleye. He
then added 3 nice whites trolling along the dam.We then began
fishing a windy point and picked up some more whites and a tough
fighting wiper. I set my boy up with a bobber and minnow and
a very nice smallmouth nailed it. After that we all went to minnows
and bobbers and had a great time catching everything. I forgot
how much fun it was to bobber fish and my son had a blast! He
wants to go again real soon.
7, 2006 - Anthony area private pond
- On April 20th this year my oldest boy (Tanner, 8
years old) and I were doing some after work fishing on a private
pond here in Anthony, KS and were just about done for the evening.
We were on our way back towards the vehicle and casting in as
we were leaving. He was using a 4" long plastic lizard for
a lure and cast in one last time. I saw his pole bend and a big
ball of moss, so I just assumed he was stuck on it. I had told
him to get it unhooked, until I saw all the splashing. I knew
he'd caught something other than debris. I cranked in my poll,
ran to him, but let him reel it in all by himself. Here's the
picture of the proud angler with his catch weighing in at 6 pounds.
I was very proud of him, and we've frozen the fish and plan on
having it mounted for him.
August 31, 2005 - Lake Champlain - 8Lb
sheaphead caught at Lake Champlain
August 22, 2005 - Uncle Courtney
Gammon and I went fishing at Lakepoint at Big Daddy
Pond one day and I, Christopher Castrisos, was fishing with a
plastic minnow lure and I caught a huge bass. In the water,
there are chemicals, so clean fish properly.
July 7, 2005 - This is a white bass
Weston Harder caught on a worm at the Wyandotte County Lake in
May 2005. It was 13" long and weighed one pound. His pole
bent over like a candy cane, it is the biggest fish he has caught.
He is 7 and has enjoyed fishing for 4 years.
August 17, 2004 - I caught this fish
on Saturday. I'm not sure on itss length or weight but I would
guess around 12 pounds. It's a pretty nice fish. I think it is
worthy to be on the page with the other catfish since there is
no channel cat fish on there. Put this one first. I'm 13 and
caught this out in grand plain (privte pound) it put up a good
5 min fight please put it on there i realy don't want to reveal
my face but please put it on there!!

My story is short but my fish is not.
I fish in the rain, I fish when it is hot.
I learned how to fish when I was a tot.
Will I ever quit fishing? I assure you, NOT!
Here is my favorite fish to catch!
One big catfish battles two
small anglers, Anglers win
October 26, 2002 - A big catfish
got the battle of its life this month when it swallowed two worms,
almost simultaneously, in a fishing pond in Meridian, Miss. The
problem for the catfish was that the nighcrawlers were attached
to hooks and the hooks led up fishing lines to two young rod
and reel anglers competing in the Wal-Mart Kids All-American
Fishing Derby. Skylar Moore, 6, left, and Justin Skelton, 9,
both of Meridian, successfully fought and landed the catfish,
which weighed 15 pounds. The young anglers have been named state
co-winners in the 2002 Fujifilm "Big Fish Contest."
The derby in Meridian was organized by the Meridian Parks and
Recreation Department. Click photo for

Sam Keys, age 8, shows off a 4lb 10oz channel cat he
caught on Memorial Day 1999 on a white Swim Tail casting from
a dock into weeds. His father Phil is holding the scales. Sam
says his two biggest fish have been caught on Swim Tails. The
other was a largemouth bass.
This is a picture of Jake Elliott's very first bass he hooked
and landed without any help at age 3. He caught it on a spinning
rod and reel using a jighead with a white twisty tailed grub
at Watson Park (Wichita, KS).
