Story: I took my little friend Elijah out fishing for catfish. We weren't catching anything so I told him to reel in his line. He said he thought it was caught on something so I went over to see if I could get it free. As soon as I held the pole I could tell there was something alive on the other end! So I told Elijah to crank it on in and this is what it was!
