    Been a minute or two since I wrote on here. Hit up my back yard the other day with a good friend for our usual milk-run on the water. We stayed focused on chasing bigger models with big baits. No love on those this day so I started downsizing. I wound up getting comfortable throwing the chatterbait picking off a few slot-fish here and there. Nothin' special. Then I made a blind cast down shore into about 4' of water. I quick rip, then a slow steady retrieve back...then WHAM!

    It's on. Immediate bendo in the rod. YESSSSSSS.... I kept her pinned, I had her. I knew it. Five second into the fight, heart racing like mad. I KNEW this was a DD plus. Ten seconds in....She runs into deeper water. Understandable as big mamas like to run, but she was running deep? Fifteen seconds in. ....reality starts setting in. Then it happened. I felt the roll, and I knew that Ive been catfished.......


    Not a giant, but went 13lbs 14oz on the scale. Ive never been so bummed to get a teener......

    IMG_4954.JPG That isn't a smile you're seeing. That little thing was a stubborn donkey....



    Now for the cool stuff. Some of you guys know me on here personally and know that I had my little daughter grace this earth a little over a year ago. Well, being that she has no choice to be a Nute, it was a matter of time before she got on the water. The wife and I shopped around for a proper PFD for her and finally found one......

    So, the PFD was a big yes, especially because she wasnt fussy about it. The picture above is about a month or so old. Since then, Ive been lucky to have a few sessions with the two most special girls I know. Dont get me wrong, I love fishing with my boys and my good friends. However, theres something special when you're with a lady.....

    Thanks for reading fellas. Enjoy life, enjoy family........and enjoy fishing!!!!!

    Man thats awesome. Always a fun time going out fishing with the little ones. My daughter will run cackling through the apartment trying to find all my fishing gear for me if I tell her its time to go fishing. Leastways you have a boat so she can be more interactive. Mine just gets strapped on and just gets to watch.
