Gorgeous cabin and quite the fish. Did you noodle it or use a line?

Bottom line, using cut bait, half a bluegill.

Hope tour is better today? That is a nice sized cat did you throwing it back or is he for eating? I love the cabin it is so rustic it reminds me of when we used to go camping.

I put him back in the water. I love to eat catfish, but no bigger than 12-15 lbs. The cabin is kinda cool, and very well hidden away, A good get away place.

@kenriley nice to hear you let him go because they are not very good eating. Yes your friend's cabin is really awesome and a great place to get away.


Poor bowser. Nice catfish. Cabin’s a tad too rustic for me.

It has electric and an outhouse, what else could you want.

@kenriley a door.

@MissKathleen LOL it's got a door two of them. One in front and one in back.The picture is the front door it's panted a dark brown.Even the outhouse has a door.

@kenriley Thank goodness. I’ve seen fishing cabins with no door...and no windows, for that matter.


Wow. Quite some catfish. And, that cabin looks like it needs some work. But if it keeps the rain off your noggin and isn't so drafty that it does keep you warm when you need to be, it'll do in a pinch. A friend of mine has found a place in the hills of Virginia. She and her new husband are renewing the house and she's planting garden beds with vegetables and flowers. Looks really cozy. That would be the life. I'd have to make sure a library was close enough. Or, the internet book sellers would be in use a lot. Hope your puppy's foot heals quickly and completely.

Quite a cabin. Rustic they say.

Bigwavedave Level 7 July 8, 2018

Very much so. I like going there when I want to get away. It's in the middle of woods and next to the Licking river.


Aw... Good stuff... Not so good stuff...

LOL Life


Nice catch .

Cast1es Level 8 July 8, 2018

Are you sure that is an earth grown creature? I have never seen a catfish that big or that color. Is you dog ok?

Spinliesel Level 8 July 8, 2018

It is kinda different looking, It's a Flathead catfish, They can get over 100 lbs, That one is 23 lbs. Thor is fine he's still sleeping, he never gets up early.


Nice catfish and I hope your dog’s foot heals ok.

Thor's foot is fine, It wasn't as bad as I thought it was. But I still needed to bring him home and dress the cut up. I was really looking foreward to a longer weekend away from the farm and gardening.

@kenriley Thor: my favorite god among the gods. Give him a respectful hug from me. Does he have only one eye? I wish you a peaceful rest of the weekend.

@Spinliesel LOL he thinks he a god. Now that I'm back on the farm, it's going to be hard not working.

@kenriley What are you farming, she asks, full of envy!

@Spinliesel Trees and hills and a little garden. I use to have horses, goats chickens, But some things changed. The trees and hills a fairly easy to take care of. The garden is a little harder.

@kenriley I am about to go out and fertilize and water my straw bale garden. That's my project this year. Rerquires no bending down ( had a spine operation last winter) The garden uses lots of water and requires regular fertilizer, but things are growing well.

@Spinliesel A spine operation, sounds bad. I guess you know it's best to go easy.

@kenriley I did , for the first two weeks. But I also adopted two chihuahuas at the same time ( I was still woozy from the painkillers.Not in the right mind at that time) Those little monsters forced me to get up and go down those 13 steps and then take them out. At 4:30 in the am. So, my back healed amazingly fast. But thank you for your concern.
