    Great day fishing Chris and Pat. I can already see you guys are gonna be a handful at the CC tournament in Feb. Wylie Cat better bring his horseshoe that day. That is a good string on any cat lake.

    I better bring a lock.

    We will need to get there before Chrisblue unloads his boat, then we can slip a lock on the chain holding his boat to the trailer!! :lol:

    You'll be able to hire Patman's Guide Service pretty soon. He's learning real fast from Chris. :big_smile:
    Great day on the water, guys. Wish I had been there with you.

    Here's 3 more pics. I haven't quite yet figured out how to import & resize photo's, but if I keep hanging out with Chris I should have plenty opportunity :lol: He really knows how to find fish.

    Pat looks like you are learning some good information from Chris. Wish I had someone that experienced to go out fishing with me.

    Pat, I'm glad you're getting into some fish. Hats off to Chris for inviting you along and showing you the ropes. He's a good one to learn from. :big_smile:

    Guys, I really know that I'm lucky. Cap'n Chris has taught me a bunch - if I never go fishing with him again I would still be 300% better off than I usta be. I guess that's part of what sportsmanship is all about, helping & sharing with others.
