More Cats, Carp, and Even Some River Otters

What made this day stand out in my mind is my trip into the heart of Missouri River dankness, where i witnessed what i at first thought must have been waves from the largest catfish i had ever or would ever see in my life.   It was unreal, massive waves 8-10 inches tall and a baby duck swimming out from the swampness  for its life.  As the baby duck nearly reached the other side of the small oxbow three otter heads emerged from the water in hot pursuit of the duck.  Then they spotted me and directed their attention in my direction, making strange sounds i can best describe as a cross between a cat hissing and purring at the same time.  We had a face off for several seconds, then i reached for my camera  and everyone disappeared.  Didn’t see what happened to the little duck, but I think he got got.  It all took place in this backwoods oxbow i had to whack my way  into…making sure i was covered in bugs pray and a thick hoody cus the skeeters were for real!  There were a lot of Grass carp, Asian carp and Buffalo back in the oxbow, I landed several hard fighting Grass carp before making the call to head back out to the creek where i went back to fishing for catfish and unsuspecting carp.
