    Sounds exciting .... I think we can rule out alligators, but it could have been any number of large fish .... but for arguments sake ... and you didn't see it .... we can concluded it MIGHT have been a big catfish .. :wink: Garry-

    We could always argue that it was a world record bluegill!

    A few years back a buddy of mine had a similar story. He was fishing a little farm pond off a dock and got it all the way in when he reached down it took a dive and snapped his rod in half on the old zebco33. He at least got to see it was a catfish. Next day I went back with him and my surf rod and landed my PB Channel Cat.:big_smile:
