    I took my neighbor cattin in TN this weekend. I think I converted a hardcore bass fisherman to cattin! He has never really done any catfishing. He loved catching skipjack (which were far and few between) and was really fired up when a 37 pound blue slammed his line. He told me that it was his biggest fish (fresh and salt) of his life. This really made me happy. I love taking people cattin for the first time, especially when they are biting! We also got a 38, 25, 24 that day. We tried flatheadin that night until 2 a.m. with bream, but had no luck. Check out the picture.

    personally there is no better feeling than putting another person on some fish. Glad you all had a good night.
