This is not just another fish story............

Yes, we have all heard the great fish stories from our grandfathers, fathers and husbands.
We have even heard them from our neighbors and friends. This man is a great friend of
my husbands and owns about 350 acres. This is one of his lakes on his property. Friday
night my grandson pictured here came by our home with his brother, sister and his parents, (my daughter and her husband) for dinner. He decided that he wanted to go fishing
this evening and my husband took him and our grand daughter. My daughter Natalie use
to fish all the time and decided to go with them. This is about 2 miles down the road from our
home. Leo is such a sweet man and let's the grand children come and fish when ever they want.
Natalie caught this channel cat, weighing 5.3 lbs. She had a real fight on her hands and Leo seen
all the commotion going on and came down to help her get it in the net. She was so excited and this is truly a fish story that you could see, show and tell about it. My grandson was disappointed that he didn't catch it. Kara was so excited she kept telling her mom to roll it in. They all had a good time.

That catfish looks almost as big Kara! I can imagine the crazy excitment of reeling it in.

Hi, congratulations to Natalie! When we figure all the money we have spent on tackle, bait & trips to lakes...any fish we would catch would cost us about $500 a pound...we're not good catchers of fish...LOL
I hope to be back to regular blogging after our Colorado trip...See ya later,
