keith "catfish" sutton I have seen his name mentioned on here a few times, today my brother sent me a news story about a keith sutton fising on the white river in AR. and he had a encounter with a black bear. good story funny and scary at the same time, was wondering if anyone else heard the story and it it was the one mentioned on here, he is a crappie fisherman as well as cat.

I met him once at a Crappie Camp. Jerry blake knows himfairly well.

Bears in Arkansas can sneek up on Ya. I have a "mad" spot I go to just to be out in the woods. A sow stood up on her hind quarters between me and my truck while there one time. We had a stare down before she left. Thinking a bear is about to whip your hiney will make you get over your mad.

I recently re-read Keith Sutton's book on crappie fishing. Very informative and I picked up some more valuable information. I just borrowed it from the library.

he got out to check on a possible bear sighting

That's about as smart as when the hot blond runs UP stairs in the horror flics.

I've taken him fishing and he has written some articles about my fishing methods. He is a really nice guy. I will call him and get the low down about the bear.

Keith is a great author and story teller. He's written several books and numerous articles on hunting, fishing and the Great Outdoors. You can purchase some of his books directly from his website - C & C Outdoor Productions Fishing & Hunting Books (http://www.catfishsutton.com/)

I take him fishing every chance I get just to listen to his stories. Well, that and he writes some really fine articles that send a lot of business my way. :)
