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.  xd emoticon

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.  happy smiley emoticon

    Nice fish; but, you should have let her catch it.

    Nope!  Not gonna happen!  We used to try to keep track of whose fishing pole was whose, but one day when I was working to free a softshell Turtlezilla from her line this largemouth bass hit my line.  She happily reeled it in and tried to claim it.  We now have the agreement that we will cheat each other fair and square at fishing whenever possible. Whoever sees the pole bend first grabs it and brings it in.  Makes fishing more entertaining. xd emoticon

    St. John's river near Lake Harney.  Same fishing hole produced both fish as well as a 13 lb. blue cat last year.  We catch something nearly every time we go there.

    I caught a fish once.
    Got my hands wet.
    The fish didn't seem to like it.

    Final report:  Fresh caught fried catfish tastes good!  Had it for dinner tonight.

    Is there any such thing as a bad morning on the water, if the boat doesn't sink?
