Caught my PB bluecat on the Meramec river mon. 5-26-08, no scale but I guessed at 25 pounds (35 inches long, by 22 inch girth). I used the length x girth x girth and it came in at 22 pounds. I was fishing in view of the I-44 bridge, caught it on fresh cut shad at around noon, I also pulled a 14 to 15 pounder just 20 minutes earler out of the same hole. CPR, she's still out there.
