    well my last couple trips out i havent caught any cats. well that changed this evening. lil boy got a lil channel and i caught a 45# blue. thanks to biga tonight for coming down to the ramp and weighing it for me and doin some fine photo shots of her. laid the ol girl on the boat ramp in the water and she took off like she was on a mission. very strong fish for being out of the water for about 15 or so min.

    Nice Cat!! Adam, I had to laugh at your comment of a gift fish off someone's trot line!! I've been skunking my fishing buddy Dave the last two times we've gone out....but low and behold both times boat fishermen who pulled in to the ramp gave Dave their fish LMAO. One time I was sitting there getting a bite when the boater pulled away and I said Dave I hope this next guy coming in has a fish for you because I'm fixing to catch another one...wham my rod tip bent down and I had the fish. Dave just shook his head and walked away.
