i thought this story was kind of funny and you brothers might want to here it. a couple of friends and i went to a local lake about 5 years ago. we fished all day a barely had a bite. as night fell, the action started to pick up. we got alot of hits and probably caught 3 channels within 2 hours. during this time, one of my friends, a smokeaholic and perhaps the clumsiest person in the world, had a nice one on. he fought with it probably 10 to 15 minutes. he finally got it to the bank. it was a albino channel cat. it was probably 10-15 lbs. anyway, as he pulled up on the rod to pull it into the net. he burnt his line into with his cigarette. boy, he was mad and disappointed. we sure had a laugh that night. we still, to this day, aggravate him about that. he will never live it down.
