Feisty Catfish

While spending a day on the middle Brazos River last week with Shane Davies, and I videotaped his client pulling in this pretty feisty little catfish.  See below for the whole post.

 

Yakking It Up on the Middle Brazos

I had the opportunity to accompany Texas river guide Shane Davies and his client Sam Underwood (call sign: Yakitup) on a guided kayak fishing trip on the middle Brazos River last week. Although the fishing was somewhat  slow (by Shane Davies’ standards), Sam still managed to pull out some very respectable blue and channel catfish. Here are  few pics and notes from that…

What do you do when it’s too cold to fish? Steve Davis, of Richardson, Texas organized his man-cave. An avid kayak angler, Davis fishes out of a Jackson Coosa, seen here stored below his work table. (Photo courtesy of Steve Davis)
