Fishing with my dad

Fishing with my dad

It's not too often you catch 2 master angler fish in one morning. This was the morning for my dad and me. All the times he took me fishing as a kid, now I get to take him. I reeled in a monster 52 inch blue catfish on a beautiful day. We also landed 2 other 38 lbers. My dad brought in a giant smallmouth, which I'm also going to post.We'll always have this great memory together!
