Huge North Carolia Catfish

Matt and His Boys with Big Catfish

Matt Sherwood is the son of one of my oldest friends.  Accompanied by his wife Shannon and their boys, Taylor and Logan, Matt moved to Shannon’s home state of North Carolina.  An avid outdoorsman, he immediately set about finding places to hunt for deer and turkeys and the best places to wet a fishing line.  As you can see by the above photographs, he has definitely found some huge catfish!  They have also caught some really large Gar.  When I was a kid we caught a ton of these in the Illinois River.  We called them “Alligator-Gar” because of their long narrow teeth filled jaws.

I’ll give you the FAQ’s, the how and where, after I next speak to Matt.  Until then, I wanted to make these photos available for folks to enjoy.

Good Fishing Matt!  Maybe you can fill in the where and how in the comments section.

I am looking forward to posting some turkey and whitetail deer photos from North Carolina in the future.
