It's a shame I didn't get a photo of it, because it's by far my largest catfish I've ever caught. I caught it using a medium action spincast setup with 12lb line. I used a size 1 J-hook from Eagle Claw, and a simple split-shot weight. All I was doing was letting the river current bounce my worm down the river, and I managed to catch that bad-boy. At first, I honestly thought I caught another snag, but when I lifted up my rod tip to follow the line direction (To see if I could work the snag loose) I could of swore I felt movement so I held the tip up... Sure enough, I had one on. My brother was just down the river, and he asked me if I actually had one or was screwing around. When he came over to see what's going on the fish finally started moving with force... It sure was a sluggish, yet strong, fish. I worked up to the shore line only to realize I don't have a net, and on top of that, when the fish saw me, he went for his second run from the shore. After another three or four minutes I got it close enough to the shore to go into the water and snatch it up. After admiring a fish that measured from my mid-stomach to the ground I told my brother I was throwing it back; to which my brother responded with some select words that challenged my sanity. I released the flathead only then, as the fish swam out of sight did it strike me that I didn't take a picture... I guess this means I just need to catch something larger to post on the forum, huh? I realize 14lbs isn't much to some of you guys, but I am extremely happy at what I managed today.
