    just wanted to share with you all the story of my pb channel and smallie (same day) pics are pretty bad took photos of pictures :p
    one day last summer my dad and me and my brother decided to go catfishing. and we decided to go to a dam by royalton where they were getting some nice catfish. so my dad told me and my brother to go get the butterfly nets. and go out into the feild and catch some frogs. whe caught about 2 dozen frogs put them in a bucket with a little water and packed up our rods and we were off. 1 1/2 hours later we arrived at the dam. we got there around noon. we rigged our rods and casted them. and waited for 2 hours before we got our first run. which was my rod and it turned out to be a nice smallie!!! (first pic) if i remember right it weighed 3 or 3 1/2 pounds. after 2 more hours of waiting we started getting cats off and on but they were small. then at * the action picked up. we started getting cats left and right. i had caught 2 keeper cats already. and then THE run happend. my rod was screaming like mad. and then flew into the water. (we only had rocks holding them) i jumped on it. and set the hook. and it ran toward some snags. i managed to grab the line with my thumb and stop the line from coming out. then he sped up going away from the snags and the line cut my thumb. after 5 minutes we had him on shore and got this pic. he was a long beast weighed 12 lbs.

    Nice fish man, you're lucky to be able to catch smallmouth where you're at. Here in SE North Carolina we don't have that luxury:sad2:. Keep fishin' and rippin' lips buddy!
