Channel catfish...... Now is your chance to say you caught a record Channel Cat. The Commission just lowered the weight to 10 pounds. They are relatively easy to catch in a lot of places. A 10 pounder won't hold the record long but will get you a state record if only temporarily......... Jordan Lake in the Spring up in the Haw River section is a great bet. Several from 10-13 or so pounds taken every year that I see. You just have to wade through 15,000 small White Cats.
