    My brother and cousin flew in from out of town to do some Mississippi catfishing with me this last week. We fished Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I played guide and didn't touch a pole other than to cast one out for them when we were fishing heavy fast current and there was a 16oz weight on there! :wink:

    They caught A LOT of fish, but couldn't break the 30 pound mark for some reason, seems that was the norm yesterday too!

    Anyways, I think they had a good time and they said they're gonna come back because they had been bitten by the "bug"!! :smile2::smile2:

    Just some random pics!

    Let me guess which one is your brother! LOL
    Nice pics congrats on the fish. I think one of the most enjoyable things about fishing for these fish is getting a new person hooked up with one and their reaction. Priceless!!!

    Congrats on putting them on some fish Bill. Seems you never have problems catching bait when you are throwing the net or when it's not a tournament day? :smile2:

    It was a lot of fun fishing by you guys Monday night. I would say those guys are about as easy going as it gets. You all sure did keep your brother on his toes though. You gonna catch that fish?:smile2:

    Good deal Rat, thanks for sharing. The pictures with the arch in the background are great and I'm sure your visitors will be showing them off to their buddies back home.
