    My son and I went crappie fishing today. Had a crappie minnow on a #2 wire hook, fishing at 16 feet with a bobber.
    Got a bite and told my son it wasn't a crappie, then started setting the drag. To my chagrin, the drag button broke. With no way to set drag, the fight was on. 15 minutes later, he netted the 14 lb. catfish.

    There's 24 fillets in my refrigerator now, waiting to be packaged and frozen, except for tomorrow night's supper.

    that sounds like fun... even if a person don't like to eat catfish they are great fun to fight in!
