now that my first year of big cattin is nearly done i cant wait on a new year to begin. i pulled in a 9.6 pound channel, a 22 pound flathead and a blue cat that weighed close to 37. I started the year off in the stillwater fishing with chicken livers and large minnows. Then i gradually started fishing the GMR and lakes. But the key was when i joined OGF and met guys like Catfish Billy and H20 Mellon. Then they had me hooked. And now i even catch myself channel cattin in the middle of winter. But its been a great year and i hope to break my personal best's from this year and become the best fisherman i can be.
