    i have just had one of the best months in my life. i just got back from school where i got my capt. license. then i go to alabama with the monster cats crew. well all i can say is i broke my pb twice and one of them is a fish of a life time, you can see the hole write up in the fat cats page. and to make it even sweeter they got it all on flim. they have a pic. of it and all i will say is that my 100lbs scale maxed out.

    That is very cool that your now a licensed captain. Also WTG on that triple digit cat.. certainly one that 95% of the catfishing community doesn't get to often. Rather not as common.
