    Ray and I went pond hopping since the river was up and right after we had just had a fish fry...BAM! We got enough to have another. I mainly was proud because I had set my catfish pole out and let it sit and was playing on my play pole with a tiny I mean tiny brim hook and a tiny piece of liver. Just moving it around and bam! I thought i got hung up on the concret thingy. Anyhow I ended up lipping the big one in the courner of the mouth with that tiny hook and even got him in. How I have no clue because as I said this was my skipjack brim pole not a catfish rig at all. Guess the man upstairs had a bit of grace for me cause I had one heck of a blast. Then Sunday we went to a lake not even knowing if we were going to catch a thing. New place. We ended up catching some great eaters 3 and 4 i think. Had a wonderful time fishing and enjoying my much needed Sun fix!:wink:

    Great job! I should have been fishing instead of muzzleloader hunting.

    Yes it was fun but I hate that when I take her to the river we get skunked and when we go what I call play fishing ( pond hoping ) we do really good, see will never go back to the river with me:eek:oooh::embarassed::confused2:

    Ray I believe that woman of yours would go fishing with you if you were fishing in a mudhole just as long as she gets to fish.
