    We launched out of clear creek and run out to the river, went down to a couple dikes I like to fish, I got Jennies pole out for her and was baiting mine when Wham,,,,,,, Fish on. It was Jennies first catfish ever and she was beside herself. I think it wieghed around 5 pounds. We moved up river past Clear creek and decided to fish the shallow side, I marked alot of fish in the 8-14' water so we anchored up, got the rods out and Wham...... She done got another. I did have a few on, but lost them. I set Jennie up with circle hooks because she doesnt do well setting a hook, Looks as though I might have to go to circles just to keep face.........:smile2::wink: I was proud of her. stayed till a little close to midnight and come on home. Had a good time and thats what counts I reckon.

    OH YEA, and its still goin on today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :sad2::embarassed::tounge_out: Yea she was grinnin from ear to ear. I dont know how many times Ive taken her out fishin an she not catch any, Finally after trying to teach here how and when to set the hook, I realized That a circle hook was the ticket for her. I thought it was funny, she said what do I do, I said Reel it in........ LMAO. She had a good time. Thanks guys I will pass on what was said. Mac
