The Golly Monster

James and Bubby took Zach over to the river fishing early Saturday morning. Just before noon he came into the house with a big grin, he couldn't say a word, just kept grinning. His PopPop and Uncle Bubby didn't catch anything worth keeping, Zach caught 3 catfish, 2 were nice sized fish, the third one was what his PopPop referred to as a Golly Monster. He's still preening over his catch, one happy fisherman.

James said it was hilarious to watch him bring it in to the bank with his rod and reel, he was yelling, "Help me PopPop, Help me!" and was backing up the bank. James told him he'd better reel that fish in, it was his to land. He'd had a big one before he caught this one, but it broke the line before he got it to the bank.

i have fond memories of teaching my nephews how to catch cat fish. They still remember it to this day, and always brag how they caught more than I did....little buggers..

That's a nice sized fish there. I showed the picture to my youngest, who is the fisherman of the family and he was impressed.

Sally stole what I was going to say.

GOLLY, Zach, that is one huge fish. Zach's smile could probably be seen for miles. I thought it was cute was saying "Help me PopPop, Help me" Priceless!!

A very good name for that ugly beast of a fish! That poor ole fish is probably as old as me it's so huge!

Congrats, Zach! I couldn't reel that thing in with a tow truck!
