      WOW! Awesome. Makes me want to travel there but there's no way I could bring one in that size.
    • CatBusster
      Some take about an hour to get to the bank, the average time is about 20 minutes depending on size and gender and when it comes to bringing one in, it is an unforgettable experience.

      we use 10ft 5.5 lb test curce rods, penn 330's and kite line at 100lb breaking strain

      taken from a story on my website -

      "The summer days are long & hot, fishing in the heat of the day can be very slow & a torturous affair for us fair skinned Brits. The evenings are cooler & gave ample opportunity for Duncan & Brian to familiarise with the Rods, Reels & the tactics involved in achieving their quarry, they were to alternate fish on the bank as opposed to takes, so as both would go home with roughly the same amount of fish each for the week.

      Both Duncan & Brian had caught catfish from Sandersons, a beautiful lake that is covered by WDAA membership that is home to 50lb+ catfish, both held personal bests of just over 30lb but had never used cork handled 7lb test curve Empire Catfish rods, let alone seen a bank of six with the tips some 20foot above the ground, nor Penn 330 right hand level wind multiplier reels that held 300 yards of 140lb kite line, running three pound breakaway weights to hold bottom in the flow of the main river & size 8/0 Catbusster Continental Pellet Hooks."

      Its an awesome place to fish and definatly worth experiencing
