Its been almost 3 years since I went fishing. I decided it was time for me to come back to where I belong and get back into fishing full swing. This was my first outing yesterday and I figured I would maybe catch one fish if I was lucky. I was only going out for about 2-3 hours so I had very low expectations. I was in for a HUGE surprise. It was absolutely NON-STOP action on the water yesterday. I hooked up within the first two minutes of casting my first pole. Doubled my pole straight over before I could bait my 2nd pole. First cat was 5.3lbs, 2nd catfish was 7.2 pounds, next cat was 7.8 pounds, 4th and biggest cat was 8.3 pounds and my last cat of the day was 6.1 pounds. The 7.8 and 8.3 I actually doubled up. I had to reel 7.8lber in to get to the pole that was about to fly into the water. It had my pole completely horizontal from a fully upright position. I was alone, so I had no one with me to help or net my fish. Luckily I got both of them to the bank and took pics with them individually. I had to take all photos "selfie style" which was quite the task. I need a selfie stick for fishin, lol.

Here's some pics:

Nice work! Nothing like sitting back and waiting for the bell to ding! I'm sure the smaller cats out of the Kankakee would be a great meal!

Thanks guys! I went again again yesterday and I didn't get 5 cats like I did in this post, but i did get another 8 pounder and a 6 pounder. I'll be posting this pics shortly in a new thread. @Tinyfisher - you might see some edited photos as time goes on this fishin season. ;)
