We Went Catfishing

18 lbs., 33 and 1/2 inches. This fish did not want to be caught. Especially by a novice like me.

I did something last night that I’ve never done before.  I went fishing on the Red River for the elusive catfish.  And I brought Red Sox and Blonde Daughter with as we fished under the direction of Captain Brad of Brad Durick Outdoors.  Brad runs a guide service and is the foremost authority on channel cat fishing on the Red River.  It is important to point out that this is an unpaid testimonial of Brad’s expertise:  We caught fish.  A lot of them.  And big ones.

In Brad’s spare time he is a salesman for WDAZ-TV.

Anyway.  Back to the pictures.

BD joins the fun with a 30 inch, 14 pounder. As they say on all the fishing shows, "That's a nice fish."

Those of you who know me will assume these photos are fake.  Heck, I have a hard time believing it too and I was there!  If this is what fishing on the Red is all about, then sign us up.  And it’s really amazing how much beauty that river has to offer, especially when you go a few miles north of town.  And obviously, a good time was had by all.

  1. Hey Chris…pretty crazy that we grew up there and never went catfishing. My nephew took us a couple years ago and we had a blast too. Unfortunately, everytime we are up there we are either too busy or the river is to high to go again…You guys are way more daring than we were…in all our pictures you can see the blue gloves we wore because we didn’t really want to touch the slimy things!!!!
