 I got to go fishing with Patrick again and even brought a coupe friends along to share the cost. This time we headed straight south of Kafountine to the river at Kassel, where his other flats boat was waiting ready. This was an afternoon trip. It took about an hour from launch to get to our spot.
   We started out bottom fishing with shrimp. This yielded four catfish in about an hour. I was really anxious to get jigging so he obliged. The tide wasn't great for jigging until it was almost time to head home. But once it got going, BOOM, it was on. All of a sudden Patrick and I had a double. Both of these fish managed to spit the hooks as we got them to the boat. Patrick hooked up with number three and lost it as well. It appeared the fish at his "best captain fish spot" were getting smart. On our second to last pass, we managed to get one in the boat. It was nerve racking, but we had dinner.
   Then it was time to head home as the sun was getting low, and we had an hour commute to the boat launch. I was totally turned around, but Patrick knew the place well and guided us back. He said he may take me out once more at cost to catch fish to sell at market. You can believe I’m looking forward to it.
