Catfish Hunter

Ken Smith

Does anyone remember the movie Grumpier Old Men and the monster catfish they had been trying to catch for years??

I think I have my own catfish hunter on my hands because for the past couple of years I have repeatedly hooked into a very large catfish on the Chickahominy River in the same area and have failed to bring this monster to the bank for one reason or the other, from snapped lines and broken hooks to the latest broken pole.

Well a couple of days ago I broke down and bought a Okuma 12 FT MH rod and tomorrow Im going to get a heavy duty reel to match it and tomorrow night the hunt will be on!!!! Wish me luck.
