About 9 i saw here pole movin some so i told her to check her pole, She started to reel and said dad i got a monster catfish! LOL! She was so excited. It is her first catfish shes 5. She must have thanked me a 100 times for takin her, she was so pumped! She says she deff. wants to go again!

    Great catch Shelby! And she outfished Dad too! (Hope she didn't rub it in too bad like Daniel does when he catches one and i get skunked:wink:)Great pics too. Obviously Val is way less digital cam challenged than i am. Next thing you know Shelby will be asking you for her very own 6500!

    That is super!!! Anytime you can get your child out there with you and they catch a fish, well there's really no words to describe the feelings it creates for you and your child. Congrats buddy!!!!

    That's cool. Good job. I remember taking my daughter for the first time this year. She is also 5. The first fish that hit I let her take. She picked up the rod and I grabbed the bottom, I engaged the reel and her eyes were like :eek:oooh:. I told her to reel and she couldn't. I had to take the rod and it was a #20 class fish but with all the camotion it took me into a snag. She was bumed we lost the fish but It was only the first cast and I told her there were more to come. About 10 min later we get another run. She told me to get it, so I did. I hooked the fish and I could tell that it wasn't anything big, so I let her reel it in. After about 10 min.she brought in a #11 Flathead. She was so excited she caught a Flathead. All she wanted to do is play with that thing all night long. I built a little pond with rocks so she could watch it all night.
