    I hope I do this right. It looks like those North Carolina folks like to give their catfish a sporting chance!!http://[URL="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26335667/"]www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26335667/[/URL]

    i for one just cant see how it happened

    my son caught something really big about 3 yrs ago on a ultra light pole with 12 lb test line on it and it was in the river and we never did get the fish to turn and after about a 15minute fight and listening to the drag sceam the line broke

    i think it was a flathead because he had caught 10lb channels on it before and this thing just ran and ran and never turned back

    Gus, ever had a fish hit coming towards you and for some reason swim to
    the bank right at your feet after you set the hook? That could have been
    what happened since the guy said the fight was over real fast. If granpa
    was fast at grabbing his jaw, that cat could have been out of the water
    before he realized he was swimming the wrong way. This weird thing has
    happened to me once but not with a fish that size. Luck is strange from
    time to time for good or bad. Makes a good story for shure!

    I caught a 52 lb grass carp on a 7' medium light action rod and 12 lb test.During trout season I snagged a 45 lb grass carp in the eyeball and landed it with a 9ft crappie rod and 6lb test. We chased it 400 yards in the boat. It was basically towing us around.At one point I was almost out of line so I had my dad fire up the big motor to get the line back { we were at SM lake where you're not supposed to run a gas motor} Of course you would probably break off 10 times for every one you would land. It could be done though.
