    Saturday night I took my 7 year old son Caleb fishing at the lake here in town. It was a special night for him, it was just him and mom, and he caught his P.B. channel cat. His brothers and sister for one reason or another couldn't come with us.(football games in the morning & colds) Caleb loves to sit here with me and check out the BOC. Last week I made a post about a strange looking bluegill he caught. I showed him the post and he thought that was really great. He asked me if he could show and tell everyone his fish he caught last night. I will do the typing and Caleb will be telling the story.

    I had bunch of fun fishing with my mom. I caught a really big catfish less then 15 minutes after we started to fish. I was fishing for bluegills with a little worm and hook and no bobber. I caught a baby bluegill even before my mom could start fishing. Then I put my worm in the water again right next to the bank. And then I felt my pole get tugged on really hard by a fish. Then I jerked really hard and the fish jerked back and tried to steal my pole from me. Then I said mom I caught another bluegill. My mom said honey that's not a bluegill and she came over and took my pole from me and said go get the net. I got the net and mom gave me my pole back and told me to reel the fish in. I reeled and reeled and mom put the fish in the net. I caught a channel catfish and it was the biggest fish I ever caught. Then the rest of the night I caught 15 fish and my mom didn't catch none.
    Thank you for reading about my catfish.
    Caleb

    Tell Caleb thanks for sharing his big channel cat with us BOC members. Great fish and enjoyed the smile on his face. Thanks. If I was closer I would buy him a big ice cream cone from DQ.

    I think that its really cool to hear a fishing story from a mother/son persepctive. Im glad that you can develope that kind of relationship with your son. Congrats to him on his big fish!:wink:
