    my mother called me wedsday wanted to know if i would take her out on the mississippi river, dont know if she has ever been in a boat before. so she drove today and off we went. it was funny first thing she said was how big the river looked when your out there. it was a little cool so i took it slow and didnt go to far from the boat ramp. we fished for a while and she did get her first catfish. it was a eight pounder. it took her a while to get it in and she was very happy that she did it. oh bye the way my mother is 72 yrs. old. still smiled like she was 16 when got that fish in the boat.

    That is so kool Rusty. I would never be able to get my mom into a boat for big cats. She did fish with Dad for crappie every once in a while tho.

    Good stuff Rusty. I'm happy she got a good cat on her trip.

    It reminds me of fishing a week ago. I saw to "old" men loading a bass boat at the dock. This particular dock is call High Point and has a big hill to climb to get back to your vehicle. So what was the big deal? They both was hooked up to oxygen tanks and looked like they was over 90. I thought to myself... There are some dedicated fisherman.
