I started out today just to over some spots and have some fun fishing myself. I dont get alot of time on trips to fish most just putting people on fish and showing what little I do know. I had a hard time with the bait right off tide was out and after an hour had 4 shad. Need some for Tawn and Nathan at 9 so i set up on a spot that I had pass over for some time. Never really market anything to big in there this year. As I pas over it I saw what looked to be some big fish down there. I got the second rod out and before I can put it in the holder it loaded up hard and it took 10 min before I ever got to see the fish. I have saw lots of big fish and when tis one popped up why on a day when i'm be myself but then thats the way is goes. Anyway I tryed to net him 5 or 6 time rod in one hand net in the other boat moving all over the place plus my dog goes nuts after the fish. It was a show to see but their was a bass fishermen just off from me and saw what was going on. He pulled over and offered to help out in all after 20 mins we netted the fish 61lbs 49" long with a 30" grith. I ask the guy if he would take some pictures for me with the fish and as he was taking them the first rod loaded up and it was a 40 lb blue two fish inside of 30 mins at a 101 lbs good start to any tournament. I did catch to more today a 35, 12 got windy so I pulled it up and headed home. I don't know the bass guys name by did get him a call If he checks out this post all I can say it thank you. Man a bass guys helping and a catfish guy thing are looking up away here.
