Better June than May in 2013
« on: June 22, 2013, 12:39:19 AM »
The spring was late around here this year, so that made the catfish bite a little later than normal. 

We put in a lot of fairly unproductive time this year setting out lines, but it all worked in the end.  The freezer is full for another year.   :up1:

Here's some of the highlight reel from when I was out with the boys.  The week that was THE best this year, I was at Boone and Crockett measurer's training all week.  Just my luck.  I knew it was gonna be good, but work comes first.   :up1:

Some pictures of me, my youngest, my wife, and one of my best buds (not many folks you can trust with your honey holes, ya know.   :innocent:   :rofl:   :devil2: ).

Love my wife's face in this one.   :hysterical:



My youngest boy (pictured) hauled all these fish in with his own muscles. We lost a monster at the boat while I was getting the line to him too though.  It was a heartbreaker.  I was baiting, and I'd hand the line to him when ever I would feel any kind of tug.  Then, when it was a big one, I would bear hug him to keep him in the boat while he fought the fish.   :rofl:   :punk:



Here was my 'anchor fish' for the year.  A 54.  The boys got a 58 without me too though.   :rofl:  All about the chess game to me really.  If I can help by saying, take this bait, and go here, and do this on this night.......I'm good to go.  I love seeing other folks being successful in the outdoors!

Those are some dandies for sure. Why have you got you wife holding the biggest ones in the first picture? By the way, how did you happen to catch such a good looking woman?  You feeding her some strange mushrooms making her haluciante?

She is small enough that it made the fish look like a keeper.   :bigup:

She'll get gussied up for a night on the town too. She's a damn good woman. :) (Especially for putting up with me. :)

You'd have a hard time finding a better woman that likes hunting and fishing any more than her.
