Default More misadventures in catfishing

Thought this would be a fun read, it's just more installments in the ongoing Misadventures in Catfishing series.

It's not really all about catfishing, it's not even all about fishing. Just goes to show you, you get to a certain age and you've accumulated quite a few interesting experiences!

I enjoyed the story about your old boat.

Great stories! We used to camp around Savana in the late 80's/early 90's too. Sometimes at the state park. Even shore fishing near the bridge to Sabula, IA was nice.
We even took boats and camped on one of the islands. It seemed like a great idea, but the snd got everywhere. Tents, clothes.... and the bugs (mayflies) at night were terrible. All three couples we were with got in huge fights and made it a brutal overnight. All three ended up geting married years later.

I went back out there last July with the same old friend, we launched at the marina and went all over that place. Didn't stay overnight and didn't get a lot of action. Did get some great pictures and scouted out some cool spots...

Very enjoyable stories Shawn. Reminds me of my exploits on the Iroquois and Kankakee river. Makes me want to do some overnight catfish in and camping again
like I used to in my old trusty Coleman scanoe with a 2.2 mercury. The scannoe was stolen a few years ago but I still have the motor.
