    Many of the posts on the board ask if certain reels will handle big fish. This lady proved that you don't necessarily have to have a huge saltwater rig with 80# line to land a big cat.

    whatever it takes

    CORRECTION - I was contacted by one of the anglers present when Diane Voss-Wilkins captured her huge catfish Monday. There was apparently an error reading the scale ... it's one of those scales that has a pin that can easily be mistaken for the weight mark. Apparently her monster catfish weighed 70 lbs., rather that the previously-reported 100. As the scale owner points out, "It was still a terrific fish and a great fight!"

    Regardless of what was used to catch it, or where it was caught, that was a wonderful looking fish.
