It's almost 4 a.m.
Wipe the sleep from my eyes
I'm a woman on a mission
I can't wait for sun~rise

I scoop up my lantern
My net and trusty pole
Scurry with great fury
To my favorite hole

It's a serene little spot
Underneath a massive oak
A most enchanting landscape
For a juicy worm to soak

The water ripples softly
Across the rock strewn creek
I sit waiting patiently
As the fish play hide and seek

The crickets serenade me
With a mesmerizing tune
The bullfrogs bellow out the chorus
By the light of the silvery moon

Not wanting to be left out
The hoot~owls join right in
As the beauty of nature awakes
Ready for a new day to begin

My perserverance has paid off
Seems I'm going to get my wish
I just landed the BIG ONE!
The Grand~Daddy of all catfish!

As I'm sitting here writing this
I'm grinnin' from ear to ear
Cause any one who does much fishin'
Knows the end of the story from here.....

It was THIS BIG and weighed THIS MUCH!!
