    My wife and I took our kids and 2 other couples with their kids out to the cabin this weekend and stayed ALL dadgum weekend. Friday night I loaded up my 2 buddies, and their wives and kids met us at the fishing hole. These 2 fellas aren't catfishermen, but by golly I think they're catching the fever. Both of them know their way around with a rod & reel but most of their fishing experience is in bass fishing in farm ponds.

    Anyway, I caught some shad & baited up 4 poles. Those guys were fishing with their kids beside me on the bank. I started just slaying the cats, and I was letting all the kids reel the fish in. Pretty soon the guys came & joined me and we really started catching the fish. I left the guys to man the poles and I went to catching more bait because we were going through it pretty quickly. They got to do the "hero" thing with the kids and let them reel in the fish for an hour or so and then the wives took the kids back to the cabin.

    Me and the guys stayed and fished 'til 1:20AM, then the fish just shut off like a light. No more bites, or anything. But man oh man did we catch some cats. Nothing really big, but they were biting hard & fast for about 3 hours. I really don't know how many we caught because they were all released but a 40+ fish night would be a conservative estimation I think. One of the guys caught a 6lb. flathead, which is the only flat I've ever seen caught out of our local lake. That's kinda encouraging.

    Anyhow, I think these guys have got the fever for sure. If we all weren't so wore out, we'd probably be fishing right now.

    Sounds like all of you had a great time. You not only got your two buddies involved but also had the kids involved rep points for that.
