I'll start with the sweetwater since thats where I put in most of my time
Largemouth Bass up to 5lbs 2oz
Pickerel up to 20"
Channel Catfish to 6lbs
White Catfish to 5lbs
American Eel to 2'
Goals for '10 are land a 10#+ flathead
Catch a smallmouth bass, preferably over 3# but wont be picky
Striper up to 25ish inches
Tog up to 4lbs
Goals for '10 are "land" 4+ ft brown shark, 20"+ flounder, keeper striper, and 6#+ tog. I think the easiest will be the tog.

ordering sharkin stuff
Mike, I am going to be ordering some sharkin tackle within the next couple weeks if you want in. I will be getting some 9/0 octo circles, 270# wire, 150# mono, 350# swivels, and some nice balsa wood floats to fish the upper column. Can't forget the menhaden oil to create a slick.I also have a dexter bait knife for you. Let me know!
im down for sharking in the yak...if we can get em in the daytime
Might be a little more safe but not as fun though. I would still try it but I dont think the bite will be as good.
