Im new to the site and am really enjoying myself. Thanks for all the helpful posts. Question; What is the biggest channel you guys have seen? I know the Ohio record is 37 pounds. But what is a really huge channel? The reason i am asking is I went to a paylake a couple of years ago with my wife and the guy told us they had just released some huge channels. Before the end of the night I had caught 2 over 12 pounds and my PB 20.8 pounder! Where did he find these fish? On a side note I have not been back to a paylake since. It just wasnt the same as hunting for and finding my own monsters. Thanks for your time!
