Kayla and I got set up Friday evening. I got a flat going in the rain about 1 in the morning. Repeated hollering and flashlight in her eyes finally brought Kayla out of the enclosure to fight the fish from the deck of the Catfish Queen. I held onto my grandaughter as she fought the fish for about 15 minutes. As it neared the bank it hit another line and shifted into passing gear. I heard the drag give a little then the fish was off. I consoled Kayla as best I could and tucked her back into her nice warm sleeping bag. Saturday night was cloudy but no rain. I thought we were in luck since the clouds would keep the full moon from giving us moonburn The sky grew clear about 3 in the morning and a clicker sounded. I got Kayla to wake up but she refused to get out of her sleeping bag to fight the fish. She did pose Sunday morning with the cat. I just finished roping the fish up when another clicker went off. My little Abu 6500 that hasn't been broken in was purring. When I set the hook I again hollered at Kayla. She informed me she was comfortable where she was and told me to deal with it. I was fishing a spot that ran shallow for a good ways out so I jumped in the little boat to fisht the fish out in deeper water. This also prevented the fish from making a quick run around a tree on the bank, as they sometimes do (Seevers ) When I finally netted the fish I thought I had broken in the other Abu. A check of the scales told me the fish was only 49 pounds so it is not officially broken in. The lady fish was 43. Both released to fight another day Maybe I can do better next week when I have more time to get into the groove.
