    Well my partner buzzed me and said a good friend of his wanted to go with us fishing and it was his birthday I said cool bring him along and ill play guide and you two can fish other wise it would have been real tight quarters with 6 poles in or boat.So we head out get to the first hole and he hooks about a 5# flatty we give it about an hour and i said time to move so head to the honey hole and setup with some live shad and gills and ended up with him catching about 8 flattys he had a ball now I dont know if any of you pay much attention when someone new catches a big cat but i had the priviledge of seeing this twice this year the look on there face when that cat comes up othe the bottem in priceless.Anyway here is a pic of the biggest one and another my boy caught the night before.

    Nice of you to bring 'em fishin', and especially let 'em fish at your honeyhole. You deserve rep for that.
