    Went out on the Mississippi this morning, took my good friend and his 7 year old boy out. They wanted to get into some catfishing as they have seen several pictures of my recent catches on the river.

    We got on the water about 5am and the first fish was in the boat at about 10 to six. A nice 17 pound blue. My buddy's boy then landed himself a 13 pounder and let me tell you, it was exciting to see that little fella fighting that fish and even better when we got it in the net! We fished till a little after noon and had good success all day long.

    My buddy told me that he now wants to purchase his own big cat poles and gear...he's HOOKED! :big_smile: I tell people that theres nothing like fighting a big cat!!

    Reps to you for taking the youngster, Had to be a blast to watch a seven year old with a 13 lb fish, and he'll never forget it.

    There isn't anything more fun than watching those young 'uns have that kind of fun. I bet somebody had to hold on to that little feller to keep him in the boat!

    Thats awesome! I got hooked the same way...my dad started taking me out on the missouri river when I was about 10! When I was 11 yrs old my dad put me on a 50 flathead and ever since I have been hooked! Most of my summer is spent on the mighty MO in search for another big cat! Now I take the Ole man out and put him on the big cats! I guess thats how it goes! Give a little take a little! We have a great time when ever we get out, whether we catch em or not! It is always a privelage to take someone young out hunting or fishing! I always get the youngsters out during the youth hunting seasons here in Missouri! Glad to here you all are having some luck! Good Luck on the water!
