    Well WhiteRiverBigCats and I along with my 4 1/2 year old went to Cagle Mills spill way yesterday. I caught my first catfish. Well, I caught a tiny one last summer but I don't count it. This one was a blue cat. Not too big but it was my first an I am very excited.

    that was more my choosing. something about being a boat and trying to handle and fishing pole. i'm scared of water lol so that makes a difference!

    Kind of reminded me of last summer with my new bait cast rod and reel. I was sitting on the bank fishing Laughery creek I was trying to catch some bluegills with my cain pole and the reel started just clicking one or two clicks then it went high speed LOL What a thrill. Pulled in a 14 lb blue.
