I've heard rumors for a long time.. but today it happened.. after the storms left our area up here I went down to see how fast the river was moving. Threw out a Rapala X-Rap, let the ripples calm down and twitched it once and it got hit hard.. it was 8:30 tonight (an hour ago) and I thought I had a 7 or 8 lb pike but it started "barrel rolling" a couple feet from the sore and decided it wanted to swim more. No clue on the weight, I didn't pick it up.. I jsut wanted to get the trebles out and put it back in the water.. but it did fight more than I thought catfish did, maybe 8-10 lbs at best.. girth about football size. |
My first ever catfish and I didn't even wanna catch one.. Someone remind me next time to bring my camera.. I always leave it home since I go out alone a lot of the time.
Fishing is fun!
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
