Keystone Catfishing August 7, 2008

Tiny's Guide Service

Fished with Mark Smith and his kids Kaleb and Krista. Uncle Darron was there also. Kaleb was having a little trouble hooking fish so I was trying to build his confidence back up and told him those were probably Gar so don't worry about it. I wrote one time that Confidence is the most important thing you can take fishing with ya so I'm working on helping Kaleb out and then after I sit down Uncle Darron sez ... those wasn't gar .. them was catfish .. you just ain't no count or something like that ... giving Kaleb a hard time hahaha ... Kaleb allowed as how that rod I had in that front rod holder was unlucky ... then I changed the rod out ... he missed another ... then he sez ... this rod holder is unlucky ... then he misses another ... Kaleb sez ... this whole side of the boat is unlucky ... wasn't long before Kaleb was knocking them down though ... he caught several between 8 to 10 lbs and a few smaller ones. Krista caught the biggun of the night at 11 lbs 8 oz .. sure looked a lot bigger than that ... I'm thinking my scales are messed up but I'll check them this evening to make sure. We had a great time ... caught somewhere around 20 fish I think. Forgot to count them.
