    Fished w/ a great group of guys on Sat, Jan 31, 2009 @ Badin Lake in a cat tourney. Me, Dad , and My brother placed 3rd outta 14 boats. We came close to beating the state record channel cat. Caught one good channel cat that weighed in at 20.2 lbs.

    Good looking fish Tubby. Not sure which is more impressive, the 48 lb Blue that took top fish, or a 20.2lb Channel. I think the 20 lb channel is more rare. Great catch.

    Jonathan you need to submit that one to the BOC for an award. It will put you at the top of the pile in the BOC NC Hall of Fame and you will get a pretty little trophy next to your info on here. Great catch man!

    yeah man, ya'll done good on that fish. That's the biggest channel I've ever seen right there. You would have had the state record 6 months ago, but you came close for sure. I might hit Tillery Sat. morning with my boys. Come on down and fish it man. You'll like the lake and I'll show you a few things about it. If for some reason I got a seat open, I'll let you know, but me and the boys crowd the boat up, if you know what I mean. If you're going, I might go to High Rock and get bait Fri.night, so if you're coming, I'll get bait for you too. Call me sometime!
