I decided I didn't have enough on May 2nd with the 5 cats I caught that day , so I decided to make a day of it yesterday and spend the whole day out at my honey hole. I only got 2 yesterday, but they were well worth it! 6.1 pounds and 8.3lbs. The 8.3 pounder was one of the best fights I've had with a catfish. He did not come quietly! lol Mind you this was tied for the biggest catfish I have caught to date with the second largest I caught the previous day that also weighed in at 8.3. I think I might get out again on Friday and Sunday for some more action. Here's the pics:

This is one of my outtake pics of the fish slapping me across my face with his tail when I was trying to get a pic with him

Thanks guys, glad to be back posting pics of my fishin adventures!

@WSJ- I was alone, I hate cooking for myself, its just not the same. Plus if a fish hits when I'm cookin I don't have someone to man the grill :) It was only my first two outings of the year, but I do plan on bringing the grill on a trip this Sunday! I'll take a pic just for you brother

Do you have your menu prepared yet? Or will you surprise us all here with your culinary expertise.
