    So I caught the fish in my profile picture a while ago but the problem was I didnt have a scale that day. Anyone got a rough estimate of how big you think this hoss was?? My guess was over 20 because i've pulled in a good amount of 13 and 14 pounders and this guy topped all of those by a long shot.

    first off that is a nice fish! second im not sure if its above twenty pounds. The local lake record for channel cat in my neck of the woods is 18.14oz and looks bigger than that fish but yours has a bigger belly. Im not 100% but i would guess 18lbs but your guess is as good as mine. I never got to hold it. Good Catch
