Last Sunday afternoon My Friend Mike and I decided to go Down to the Kansas River and do a little fishing. We arrived at about 3:30 launched the boat and went to catch bait. Bait came pretty easy and before too long We had plenty of Shad and Goldeye to last the trip. When We get to the fishing spot, and Anchor off at the head of a nice looking hole. We each bait up our circle hooks with 1 shad and 1 Goldeye each and pitch them down into the hole. pretty soon I get a run and reel in a small 3-4 lb channel cat. Not exactly what we're after but at least it chased away the skunk. Shortly after I released My fish, Mike's rod Got a BIG clicker run......He engaged the spool and the fish instantly doubled over the St. Croix Classic Cat rod He was using. After A good battle I netted His catch, a nice Healthy 25 lb Blue cat. Easily His personal best. We CPRed the fish and got back to buisness. At this point the fish seemed to Be wanting goldeye, and pretty soon all four rods were Baited up with it. 15- 20 minutes after Mikes fish My Abu 10000's clicker started Screaming. I reach over and engage the spool and This custom Made cat rod of mine doubles over in the rod holder!!!! Amazing MY Big Boy rod is a 50lb line class rod Makes a heavy action Quantam Big cat look whimpy. And this thing is Doubled over!!!!! I grab it out of the holder, and got to feel the power of the fish and then nothing.....only had it hooked for about 20 seconds or so, I knew I missed a HUGE fish. After that the action seemed to die down so We moved upstream and checked a couple other spots and nothing was happening. Well We had to go Back downstream to get to the ramp so We Decided to give That first hole 10-15 more minutes cause We wanted to hit another spot on the way back to the ramp. As were getting Baited back up We are really getting low on Goldeye so I decide to bait My big rod up with This Big shads head. We throw out and almost instantly start getting runs But We miss Three in a row. Right as it got Dark My 10000 on My big rod Started screaming Again. I click over the spool and hook up this time. As soon As I got the rod out of the holder, I knew I had a big Blue on. An Epic Battle insued, We definatly went toe to toe, I'd reel in line She would pull it back out. After Twenty minutes We finaly got it in the Net. Personal Best rod and reel fish a 66 lb Blue cat.CPR She's a pig check her out!!!!!
