It was a nice calm peaceful afternoon/evening on the water. Beautiful setting. My kind of fishing. Not a single fish biting to disturb me. Well the boat owner lost a good catfish that he got right up to the boat. His knot came untied.

Four of us on the boat. One guy was missing one of his hands. Another only has one eye. Sort of a pirate crew.
The guy's knot that came undone......did the one eyed guy or the one handed guy tie it?

Nope it was the two eyed, two handed owner of the boat. I would have given him more of a hard time over it but it is a nice boat and I want to get invited back again.

I don't want to know how you discovered that.
or how he baited the hook....
Not sure I want to eat that fish either or remove the hook!
Ahh come on. But you'd fish with guts, blood and stink bait? Bait the hook and eat the fish?? lolol

Went fishing again yesterday afternoon. There were some guys at the fish cleaning station with 35 catfish. We asked what they caught them on. Mormon crickets was the answer. We dropped the boat and ran back to the bait shop in the little town. We ended up catching 5. The biggest one was 10 pounds. The others ran in the 7 to 5 pound range. We were fishing in 50 feet of water right up next to shore.
