    Lets see what the makings of a southern catfish stew can produce. I had one about 10 years ago and it was delicious. Is it still being cooked down south and if so can you get me a really good recipe?

    I love fishing and hunting shows. That said, do you think maybe you could use the word “awesome” a little more frequently? Today was my first time watching the show, and I think you only used the word 14 times in less than five minutes. Come ON, man! Don’t you know how irritating and annoying that is?! I think it actually turns folks off so much they have to turn the channel. I did. No one wants to hear something over….and over…and over…Get it? Don’t mean to sound mean, just annoyed.
