My wife Laurie and I got out after some Blue Catfish on lake Norman, NC with catfish Guide Mac Byrum on Dec. 26th.. Mac is a great cat man and a interesting guy to boot. He put me on my first Blue catfish and it was a beauty at 35 pounds. Laurie got to handle the remaining bites for the day but they were all average fish. What a great time. I'm so lucky to have a spouse that likes to spend time out on the water.
