    Well for the first time this year I went out and tried to catch some catfish. Me and Skip Martin headed out to a local farm pond. Not much luck on the fishing, but I did manage to catch my first ice cat. 4# 15 oz. I was surprized by the fight this fella still had in him. Oh yeah, 2# test Vicious line and a wax worm.

    actually 4-5" of ice. The edges were free in some spot. Recent rains had messed up the top of the ice.
