    me and polecat cashed in on the opening day for tree rats. before hunting we set out a trot line with gills on it. after hunting we flopped back in the boat to retreave our line and hopfully the cats on it. all the baits are gone and at the end was this brute. he rapped all our bait but the last hook,his greed did him in. hoosierpolecat kissed him and let it go free. :smile2:
