Daddy caught two 7-8 lb. catfish, a bream, and 2 turtles (or the same turtle twice). I finally caught a catfish and reeled it in all by myself. It was about 5-6 lbs. Daddy said I caught on to casting quickly. I was so worried about maiming his ears, eyes or getting the line tangled up in trees. Have you seen the character Sue in The Middle? I'm a little like that. My grandmother used to say I was fru-fru (clumsy). Thankfully, I managed to end the day without maiming myself or anyone else.
We fished with peeled shrimp and live worms. I could not thread the worms; it put my stomach in a turmoil. I even felt bad hooking the fish, but I've been told they don't feel pain the same way humans do. I hope that's true.

wiggly, heavy fish was a challenge.
