I was fishing in the ohio river the other day with 50# pro power line a palomar knot and a a size 10 king kale hook with a pound carp for bait and hooked into the biggest monster of my life and ill never hook one like this again in my life. this might sound like a fish story but its not i would not lie about this i have caught 40# pound flats but only took about 15 minutes to bring in without hogging them in. But I had a fish hooked for an hour an half chasing it up stream with my buddy working the trolling motor even after an hour this fish would take 50 yards every time he got close to the boat in the last 15 minutes of the fight I think he got caught in a submerged trot line. I could only get him to a certain point then my knot broke at the hook and the thread on the palomar was not crossed. I am a very serious person when it comes to fishing and I honestly believe i had state or world record catfish cocky as that might sound. I was in 40 feet of water and he was sticking to the bottom and heading straight up stream and i noticed when he got in that trot line or whatever it was. You cannot understand what it felt like when that line when limp. i never hossed him. its just sad that now this has to be a story instead of having a picture of a catfish the size of me. boys and girl that ohio has fish in there that are massive i have never even heard of what happpened the other night except for that guy that hooked that world record blue.
