allright guys, i want you all to welcome my buddies kid, sammie, to the wonderful world of catfishing. took the boy out last night and he bagged his first catfish ever, about a 2 1/2 - 3 pound channel. now i believe he thinks he is ready to be on the pro circut. and just like a true catfisherman, every time he tells the story of this catch the fish seems to get bigger and bigger.... and he just caught it last night! lmao the kid is hooked for sure, just like his dad who caught that 20 pound blue his first time out in the same exact spot on the meramec.
