    He thought he had a monster cat but then reeled in bait..

    Something good came out of the trip

    hey theres nothing wrong with throwing a dandy bass back into the water. now maybe he will be nice and grow a few more pounds and let you catch him in a few years. i doubt it but hey! someday someone might very possibly have the joy of catching that nice bass. good job on cpring even the bass

    It was nice meeting you too Malcom, maybe next time we fish I will be a little better off with my hand/wrist so I can hold my pole and reel. Glad to see you catch that Smallmouth and that Channel that Shane caught before we left.

    Maybe next time one or all of us will be holding up a Flat!

    The bigger smallies are waking up now-Catching nice ones while bait fishing.
    once in a while they'll also take your smaller gills intended for flatties. It's getting cold FAST guys!

    It was nice meeting you too, hopefully we can meet up again sometime soon and land some flatties. I may have to rely on Shane sneaking off through the trees again though. :embarassed:

    That was humorous, see a guy with 2 poles set up, then another pole about 50 - 60 yards away. And all of a sudden, he says shhhhh and off he goes running for his pole. Man, you are crazy Shane... I am deathly afraid of losing a pole, I am not brave enough to try that!

    Don;t hold on to that thought of getting cold fast. because it appears it is supposed to be warming up here in another day or so. so that means its not going to get cold like we all thought it would two days ago

    Shane, I couldnt keep up with ya my friend. I am only a couple years older than you, but my big ole body cant handle that running and going up and down on that terrain. I was glad to see you come back carrying that channel cat though. And that was a very nice Smallmouth that Malcom had too. I really appreciate being able to fish with you guys, and to be part of the Brotherhood!

    One of these days, one of these days... I will be able to stand along side ya'll with a nice Flat!

    Nice smallie! I've caught 3 over the past couple of years outta of White River that have been 19-20". They're one of my favorite fish to target.
