    You showed him the light!:lol:

    I was catching Bass today in the pond beside my house when all of the sudden I hooked a nice Channel Cat that I didn't even know was in there, he was probably 8-10lbs. Well I thought I had like a 15lb Bass, lol. He got off near the bank but man it is a much better fight then the Bass.

    Great! Now to "Seal the deal" have him put all those bass lures in a pile, soak them in lighter fluid and set fire to them! LOL

    I have a buddy that we need to help out. Just check out he noodle that we found of Gooboys on the Red River last night. Check out post #340 on the Catfhing on the Red River in the Louisiana state threads. He is going to kill me over this one. We have given him such a hard time all day about this. You have to understand his wife caught him purchasing a raddletrap yesterday.

    Wow - catching two 20+ pounders on your 1st time catfishing! You've ruined him 'cause he's gonna expect that all the time now.

    Oh no! Send them to me. When the cats aren't biten I can use them. Sorry, I promote the sport of fishing not a fish. I like to fish for channels and do so more than for others. Got to becareful OR can end up just like A DIEHARD BASS FISHERMAN, WORSHIPPING THE FISH.
