Vicksburg resident Eddie Brent caught this 76-pound catfish while fishing in Steele Bayou on October 30. Brent caught it using a rod and reel. The fish measured 4 feet, 7 inches long and its head was 35 inches around. The tail fin was 1-1/4 feet. My congrats to Eddie for hauling in such a prized fish! I wonder what Mel would say about this one over at Idaho Fishing Notebook!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
