    How many of you have had your picture up there on that baitshop wall? Don't worry, I know we all get smarter as we go.

    I did years ago, but it was of a 66 pound snapping turtle I caught, not a catfish.

    Nope, the bait shop is too close to the post office, and no one, in their right minds, want their picture on the post office wall.

    The lady that owns the local bait shop sells big skipjack she catches. Well instead of buying we bartered a system. 4 big crappie filets (2 fish) for one skipjack. So I usually take her in a bunch of big crappie so she took my picture with them last fall and it's up there with all the catfisherman, I circled the fish and wrote BAIT by it. They all got a kick outa that :lol:

    My picture still hangs in several baitshops around here. I caught the former state record walleye in1995 from our local lake, and it was big news back then. Most of the bait shops have left the picture up to entice folks to continue to fish for the walleye. Still stretching that 15 minutes of fame..... :cool2:

    Had my picture in boat dock on the White river just below Bull Shoals Dam. Caught a 10lb 2oz. and 6lb. Browns the same night fishing the holes below the dam with broken back Rapalas. I havn't been back since they started catch and release only in that area tho.
