I have read a lot of posts about do monster cats exist. I think they do. Maybe not 300, but I know that theres at least one if he has not died of old age is a state record probably World Record Blue cat. I know this fish exists because I saw it. And if it had been caught we would have heard about it. Thirty years ago I was jug fishing Lake Guntersville on the Tennessee River. Back then we used Quart clorox bottles instead of noodles. I had fished all night and it was an hour after daylight. I had picked up all my jugs and counted them. I sat back and was just drifting, smoking a cigarette and enjoying the early morning. Just relaxing after a long night. Suddenly not 10' from my boat thread fin shad started jumping, hundreds on them. It was like it was raining shad. Then I saw what this school of shad was running from. This big, big, blue cat surfaced and was gorging itself on the shad. It porpoised twice I could see the threadfins stuck on its tongue as it shook it head from side to side gobbling up the shad. And then it was gone. The whole thing lasted probably 5 seconds. I know I was shocked and excited and I have never tried to estimate its weight. All that was out of the water was to its dorsal fin. I could only see splashes where the rest of its body was. But this fish looked to be at least a foot between its eyes. I have seen blue cat that weighed 86# and it was not even in the same class as this fish. To be honest the blue cat that brother Radish caught on the Mississippi a few years ago reminded me of the fish I saw. I know that as many people as the BOC has fishing these cats have been seen. How many have had them to break off or come loose at the boat? How many have seen a big fish and not been able to land it but were afraid to tell how big he was because people wouldn't believe it anyway?
