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!!
