    The 84 lb blue cat that I caught and posted here recently has been accepted by the IGFA as the new World Line Class record for 130 lb line! Now when the certificate arrives I'll have to find the perfect place to hang it! This is exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    darn, congrats. i guess they didn't enter the blue they hauled out of san vicente lake in ca then about 10 yrs ago or so and was showing at the boat and fishing show. it was 101 and believe is ca record. know it's a ca record and was caught on 10lb. but was caught on live minnow by a beginner fishing for bass. i saw it and even have picture somewhere buried of it taken when in the tank..
    it's back swimming in lake now.
    was that a state record for you?

    Congratulations on a great catch, and the award to go with it.

    Looks like you are building quite a collection of certificates.

    Eric,

    Can you get us a write up and photos for the BOC Library, would be great to have for our community.

    If you can spread the word about the BOC in your new fame, it would be greatly appreciated! :wink:

    Thanks,
    Paul
