    I got to go to Lake Cherrywood again today...I reeled in another 1.75 pounder on my Rhino. Daddy reeled in a 2.5 pounder. I don't know what the other one was. We ended up catching five altogether. Mama came this time, too. She didn't catch anything but I got to tell her how to hold a catfish and what glowtips and light sticks are for. Daddy likes to get the fish off the lines for me but I was watching to see how he does it. I mean what if Mama and I were fishing and one of us caught a catfish? She won't pick it up. First time I saw her catch one she brought it up on the pier, turned a bucket over on its side, kicked the fish into it and got another bucket of water from the lake and dumped it on it. I mean I know you can get stung or finned by a catfish but it ain't nothing to be scared of. If you hold it right it's less likely to get you.

    Forgot to mention...I DID have to hold my own catfish. At one point we had a bit of simultaneous catching going on. That was when I did the demonstration.

    Way to go Melissa. Sounds like ya'll are having to much fun catching all those fish. Always nice when family is involved. Sounds like fish frys all over the state and surrounded states. Can smell them cooking:roll_eyes:
