My 10 yr old son and I got to Sloans lake right around 6 pm. Lots of people, a few boats and no actions on the poles. We messed around and joked and just had fun, even though we weren't getting any bites. About 10 min. to 8 I told him to start packing up and we would head home. All of the sudden the pole started dancing and WHAM! My son gets a 21" 3 1/2 lb channel catfish! It's his biggest fish ever and the smile on his face says it all! So proud and happy for my boy!
