    I was fishing in one of my farm ponds and I pulled in about a 6 lb. channel and I picked it up to take a pic. with it and I noticed that under the anal fin there was a sack that was realy swollen and red. Odd enough I think they are spawning. I felt the water and it was still pretty cold and non of the other cats I caught had the same.

    Sounds like the bladder that swells up when you pull a cat from the deep. But a farm pond? Weird.
