Scenic City Fishing Guide Capt. Richard Simms was delighted to have 6-year-old Noah on board when he hooked into a massive 45-pound blue catfish. Forty-eight-pound Noah was nearly matched in weight by his adversary but was up to the task and carried most of the load himself. He did seek a little help from his grandfather, Troy, as he battled the beast on a rod from B’n’M Poles and a hook from Team Catfish Tackle.
Noah’s family told Capt. Simms that Noah loved fishing, and he was quite accomplished. He verified his skills later in the day when he and his grandfather doubled up on a couple of nice blues. This time Noah had a 28-pounder.
