Went fishing on the Champlain canal from 9:00 pm till 4:30 am caught 6 channel cat they all averaged around 5lbs with the largest being 7 lbs. Four of the six were caught on gill heads two on garlic chicken livers. I entered the biggest in the fish off and i dont think im supposed to post the photo here. I had to transport the 7lber home in a 50 gal tub in order to get a pic. The fish was released in the river alive and well.
