Finally!!!.......Out-fished my wife.
Put the boat in the water at sunrise this morning. My wife's score when we got off the water at 10:00 am was 8 sticks, 1 weed and -1 fishing pole that she dropped overboard and we did not recover.
My score was 1 stick (for the record, it was bigger than all 8 of hers combined) and one 9 lb. 27 inch channel catfish.
