last night a buddy of mine who has never been fishing and has been having a really hard time, (lost his mom to suicide and has problems with substance abuse) headed out at dusk for some channel cat fishing, it started off slow with not much action around dusk but as soon as it got dark and i walked to the car to get us some waters i heard him yelling, so i ran back down and he was fighting what turned out to be a 10 pound plus channel, which turned out to be the big fish of the night. he was really pumped and it was awesome to see. it was also funny to see his reaction when he found out catfish talk.. that was a good laugh.. but we ended up catching 9 in about a hour and a half, he caught most of them so that made it all the better. he said for me to call him next time im going out, so i think next time im gonna try to get him on a big flathead:smile2:

Good job on taking your friend fishing im glad to hear that you got to help him out expecially with all the problems hes been going through in his life, sounds like he had his self a blast and caught a nice channel catfish, I say he was shocked when he heard the catfish thanks for sharing your story with us and keep us posted on how the fishing does for you.

What you did last night... it could be the start of something big...

We need more people like you... If you can get your friend out more and more you will see a vast improvement, it gives him something else to utilize his adrenaline/focus for...

If you get him a bigger one he will be hooked! LOL (as if he isn't already)

What a great story Larry, it is always awesome to witness someone catching thier first catfish, I know that had to bring alot of joy to your friend.

Where on earth were ya'll fishing? I've been out for the last night days and still haven't caught a cat!

I'm glad he got to hear the catfish talk, that is awesome. If anyone knows where I can get some audio of that let me know, I've been looking all over the web for it.
