    About two weeks ago I took one of my best freinds son out catfishing. My best freind has never been a fisherman, but he has taken them out camping a few times and tried to learn how to fish due to his kids. Drake, the one I took out absoluty loves to fish. His two brothers have a freind that lives in the country near Richmond Mo and they are always teasing him with fish that they caught. On a vist to see my best freind Drakes brother Payton was bragging about his two pound catfish that he caught and really teasing Drake to death about it. Drake said that he would love to catch something that big so I told Drake that this weekend I promise you that you will get that fish. <lol> the night before I was asking god to please not let this kid down and he answered.

    I drove down to Richmond to pick up Drake. We headed off to fish Blue Springs Lake and then afterwards have a night of him beating me on every single game on the playstation 3 <lol>. Drake not only beat his brother by three pounds with his five pound channel, but got a real nice stringer of cats. His brothers are now in envy of him as he is now the grand fisherman <lol>. Funny how things have now turned around for the little brother. Now when they go fishing that pond they are always asking Drake to go along.

    This is Drakes big catch that night:smile2:

    Sounds like some good fishing. I really love to take people out for the first time......................Heck even for adults they turn into little kids when they catch that first big one!
