    Finally caught me a Blue cat last week and it was a blast! only weighed 7lbs 9 ozs but it was a nice little fight... I'm now hooked on goin to the MO river and finding them big blue cats!!

    Nice fish but to me that looks like a channel, greenish color and no big hump behind his head before the back fin. Either way still a nice fish. Chris

    Nice fish. You have Blue fever now and nothing else will do. I hope you have great success when you fish the Mo. river. Nothing like fishing big rivers for big blues. Good luck.
