    Mean Gene the Fishing Machine takes the Ohio river on.

    Gene Chambers showed up at my house yesterday ready to catch fish, so we took off for a evening of fishing little yet known to him he was about to land his biggest catfish to date.

    At 9:30 Pm last night Gene was sitting in the boat watching the fish finder when a fish decided to engulf his bait and put him in heart attack mode !! After 5-7 Minutes fighting the fish Gene got it along side the boat and the fish was netted and we both lifted the net into the boat. Gene decided to let the fish have a little more to eat while he was taking the hook out it decided to eat some of Gene's flesh off his thumb. I was not sure if the fish was bleeding or Gene was..LMAO

    After weighing the fish Gene now has his personal best at 40 Lbs from the Ohio River , He has two more full days of fishing here so he is hoping to knock that one out of the ball park with a bigger one. I think Gene is ready for the Candy bars and the Pink Twinkies now !! lol
