Man did it ever rain today. I took a drive to my hometown in Richmond MO to visit my best freind since I figured that I wouldn't be able to fish tonight. His son wanted to come stay a couple of nights and hopefully do some fishing in the next day or two. On the way back to my house we were planning on going to see a movie tonight. <lol> that didn't happen at all. As soon as we got to my house we thought that since it hasn't been raining much for a while we would grab a pole and head to Blue Springs Lake. Mother Nature kept it dry for the most part with occasional light rain. About a hour in and nothing. Drakes pole bent down with vengence. He grabed it and the fight was on big time. <lol> he could hardly handle the thing and screaming for me to take over. I kept saying no way and that it was all on him. His biggest cat so far is eight pounds and I knew this was going to be much bigger. Ten minutes or so later this monster channel was at the bank with Drake just freaking out with joy on what he landed. I got the fish on dry land and took the hook out of the mouth. God I was so happy for him. I put it on the scales for him and his channel cat went 16 pounds. Right then it started to rain good enough to not be able to get my digital camera out. Still to excited to quit fishing. We put his cat on a stringer and fished in the rain for a while <lol> all the while of him giving me crap for beating my 12 pounder last night. The rain didn't last long thank god and we ended up catching two more small cats. Before letting is huge channel go back we snapped a picture near the dock. This is a picture of his huge and new PB 16 pound channel. It's fun taking kids fishing and <lol> thank goodness we didn't go see a movie tonight.
