    world zero!!
    Got up early this morning grabbed my oldest boy Eric and headed to the fishing hole, overcast and 75 degrees, perfect! fist cast I almost instantly snag a 3 1/2 lb catfish, then get my boys hook baited and threw mine back in bobber sat in the water for about 10 seconds the just vanished from sight, I fought that sucker for about 5 minutes then my bobber mooved right up to the peir and I looked down and saw this 2 1/2 foot long catfish swim by with my bobber in tow! I said holy Sh!t I caught Shamu! just then I realized I didn't have a net, So I had Eric hold my pole and I had to grab the line with my bare hands and lift him onto the peir Eric said "Wow Dad yoyu caught a monster!" THIS THING WEIGHED 11 POUNDS! trying to knock it out so I could gut it I was almost afraid I was gonna have to put a bullet in it, it took 4 good hard whacks with my leatherman to get his head to crush! then I got my mother in laws car to run again with just a lifter and a lifter guide, 7.50 from P&P dealer wanted 50.00 for the pair. Plus the lifter galley for the lifter that exploded was galled really bad, took a file and some emery cloth to it, cleanit up real good lubed up the new lifter and threw it back together in under two hours runs like a champ with 30 lbs oil pressure at idle!
    I AM THE FISHING AND FIXIT GOD!! ALL BOW IN MY PRESENCE!! :D
