Having fished much of Old Muddy over the past 40 years I was aware of the carp and catfish picture in the river. I had heard rumors of giant channel cats with the largest being 17 to 18 pounds — trophy cats in just about any ones book.
When I see kids squeal and jump for joy over a flopping bluegill or gyrating catfish, I know those kids are hooked. When I see them notice wildlife, insects or frogs I realize that they are intrigued as to what God made more than what man made. Let’s face it, fishing is fun.
