    Kim asked me to take her catfishing again this evening at Opossum Lake. We fished from 7 pm until 9:15 pm when it started to rain. We caught 17 catfish. I had 11 and she had 6. She was up 6 to 2 when I went on a hot streak. I also caught a 14 inch largemouth and 5 turtles including 3 big dudes. Biggest two turtles were the size of garbage can lids and mean as heck when they hit the bank.

    We used raw shrimp again tonight. Beautiful evening to be out!

    I still have all of my fingers. I get as close to them as I can and cut the line as close to their mouth as possible (usually about a foot away or so). I hate to leave the hooks/line in the turtles but I'd hate to lose a finger even more! LOL.
