    took paul with me again today hoping to get some video of good fall catfishing ..our day didnt start very well . put the boat in the water and found out steering is froze , then motor didnt want to start low batt. finaly get it started and run about 5 miles down river we get set up on one of my best blowouts and started getin bit , channel cat bites all day tap tap tap we finaly caught a few small ones , so i made a move got set up and caught a few more small ones , it was tough but i had one more trick up my sleave but now the starter goes out of my motor so i have to hand pull it what a pain,so i made one more move and set up this time i started to do things differantly , i dont know what this techique is called but i call it power finessing it seem to help me hook up better when the bite is tough. we were on about our 2nd bound and the channel were still pounding and caught a couple more small ones and then tap..tapp nibble and then i apply my technique and baaaammm... im hooked up with a power house "what" im thinkin ,this is what came from what i thouhgt was a channel cat bite hmmmm... i wonder how many more we missed today . i caught a couple more 10-12 lb blues and theen it was time to go, didnt weight it but i guesstamate to be 70ish paul (louisvillerider)got the catch on video

    Hard to believe a fish that size is even capable of nibbling!
