    First off....

    I want to say thank you to everyone on this forum for providing such crucial info on catfishing. I'm def. becoming a better catstalker thanks to everyone.

    again thank you :big_smile:

    I caught this guy early last night at Badin. He was really far away from the shores. Barely set off my clicker, so naturally I thought it was just a decent size one....I was def wrong.

    The saying goes "cant judge a book by its cover.".....i must say cant judge a fish by the pace of the clicker.. :eek:oooh:

    He's not nearly as big as what I've seen from all the pics on the forum. But for me he's for sure a personal best. I finally got him and hopefully more to come...

    We snap some shots and let him be on his way even got a goodbye picture too :smile2:...didnt have anything to measure him so I dont have the numbers. :angry:....

    just One word after the catch...surreal
