    My wife finally agreed to go catting so we went Friday night. I brought along a sleeping bag for her since It was going to be an all nighter. I get 3 lines out working on the 4th and a rod bends. She fights it but it gets snagged, I take over and miraculously, it swims out and I get it to the boat. It was a 29lb flathead. I recast and before I set the rod in a holder I feel a hit. I hand her the rod and she gets in a 15 lb flathead. Her first cat, ever. It was an exiting night with 10 total cats. She had fun and may even want to go again!

    Nothing like taking someone out fishing for the first time and getting into a mess full of cats. That should motivate her a bit more when you ask her to come with you the next time. Here’s the real question though...did she bait her own hook? :)

    Well, she will bait up a hook for bluegill and remove bluegill from the hook. Next time she will have to bait-up the cat rods and pull the 35lb anchor. Ain't no free-riding here, lol... (just kidding Honey)
