For my dad’s 70th birthday, I wanted to do something special. We had both talked about doing a cat fishing trip for years and just never committed, so I made the decision to book it. I decided on a guided day trip with Cat Daddy – we heard rumors that he was a good guide. Well … the rumors are true. Paul Munroe knows what he’s doing when it comes to guiding for catfish on the Red River. It took less than 5 minutes before my dad was hooked into his first fish. The day turned out to be like a dream … we were hooking into cats at least every 15 minutes or less. My dad boated 2 tagged catfish and I boated 1. We stopped for a while just to catch some Goldeye and my dad even caught a nice crappie!
The action was AWESOME, the fight exhilarating and the company relaxing. Paul is a super friendly guy who appreciates fishing as much as we do. When it was all said and done, we had boated around 50 cats, only a couple of which were under 20lbs. Our best was a 38 pounder that came right at the end of the day. We felt like kids catching fish for the first time again. It was awesome to share this with my dad, who has said several times since that “in 70 years this was the best present EVER!”.
Thanks, Paul for taking us out. We’ll see you again!
