    I took my son's Derek and Bryan out today to catch some bait for the stock tank. Derek caught his first fish a 3 or 4" bluegil. Then he caught his first catfish aswell actually his first 2 catfish. 2 bait size bullheads. My wife says I've created a monster with him. All he talks about is fishing. Kind of ironic considering who his dad is. :smile2:

    We fished for a couple hours and brought home 25 bullheads for the stock tank. Also threw back 5 or 6 little ones too. Now I'm ready for the river! Bring on the flatheads, I don't care about the stupid cold front. :wink::eek:oooh:

    Jim,
    Thanks! Now I just need to guide my oldest son to a bigger flathead. His biggest is 6lbs. He needs a 40lber, you know something that will try to pull his butt in the river. :smile2:

    Hes been fishing 2 or 3 times this year but hasn't caught anything. He was hooked before he caught any fish! Now he is really hooked. Driving my wife nuts. My 2 year old daughter is running around saying fishing, fishing, fishing. LOL :smile2:

    I'm a proud dad right now! :cool2:

    Thats an understatement, it gets difficult getting him to set still for even a minute. I have determined that anytime I take him fishing it won't be a relaxing time. LOL But I have fun watching his face light up.

    Yea,
    Derek spotted a leopardfrog yesterday at the lake. Kept him for bait. Then he didn't understand why I didn't want a bullfrog he seen later for bait. LOL
