  2. A couple of the nice ones that my nephew and I landed with Morris! Both had tails that had been bitten by gators.... one on top, one on bottom. Orrrrrrrrrr, they ...more were Siamese bass separated at birth. And each got half of the tail so they could both survive! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. Best fish of the day, but Will's catfish was the biggest. This guy was quite unique! He was really only 12.25" long but his tail had a long sliver that ...more extended off of it to make him barely under the 13"mark! Hard to see in the pics, but it's there! WEIRD! Probably one transplanted from Chris P. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ We caught a bunch of smaller ones too, like in lower right picture. CPR on all today.

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
