im thinkin of spooling all my big cat rods with 10 or 12 pound test. i fish in a medium sized river and i was thinking when i hook a monster ill could follow it around with a canoe until it tires. i got the idea from a fishin show where they caught a stergeon that went 100+ pounds on 12 pound line. they just stayed above it with a boat until it tired. does anyone know the record for flathead catfish on 10 or 12 pound test?
