    Y'all remember when I made the following thread about someone stealing my dad's pole?

    http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14308&highlight=Theives!!!

    Well I got him a new one today, and a very nice one at that, actually a lot better then his old one. Got a friend that fishes saltwater that had this pole custom made, but he ended up wanting to sell it and gave me a heck of a deal, $80. Hatteras Heaver rod, 10ft long. They run about $200+ usually, we use them for catfishing off the bank, esspecialy at dams, or anywhere that we need to chunk a big bait way out. Also use them for Cobia, Redfish, etc. In saltwater which is what the rod is really made for.

    Check out the pictures, my dad's really proud of this rod, and why shouldn't he be? I'm actually jealous! LOL!:big_smile: Right in time for Fathers day, I'll have to get one like it for my Birthday.:big_smile:

    I wouldn't want to have to call you "Dad"......LMAO

    If you were my dad and we were in public I'd probably act like you were some crazy guy following me around....LMAO

    Just kidding.
