Hooked up with Scott Friday and went out to the slough. A family of Laotians was out there and they had some lil fish. I sat out there and drank a beer with em a bit and they were really nice folks! Helping us launch the boat and all. I promised them a nice cat:wink: Got over to the other side the bite was RED HOT! First cat was small, 3# and all 3 pole of mine were bent:smile2: Had to pick which one:confused2: I ran over to the pole in the canal. The holder was a cheapo so didn't trust it and it was holding my penn on my 7 ft ugly stick.oooh: Fat cat played me a bit, clicker has still engaged and it startd to sound like my old army machine gun when I was a kid. Disengaged and set the hook. Boy them cats love Danny Kings! Took 50 yards of my line and this canal is narrow. 15 min later my 25 lb big game leader broke:sad2: I was CRUSHED! Man the cat had came up several times, it would beat my Mendota best of 16#. OK, I turned around to see my 9 ft ugly stick bouncing up and down. I ran over to it. It was in the main river and finally after working the cat out of some brush, pulled in a 7#. Bite let up around 1 am and called it a night (morning) around 3 am. Took up the bite again at 6 am and total was 6 cats landed, 5 big fish lost due to snags. Gave the asain folks my cats and they were as happy as can be. A good trip all and all. All fish caught on DK's. None on liver. Them folks cooked some of them cats in a soup and had some sticky rice. Sat down and ate with em. I normally CPR most of my fish, but felt led to share em with these folks and glad I did. What a trip!
