I know if any of you have ever been around people and they find out that you catfish they always ask you - So whats the biggest catfish that you have ever caugh?. I had a guy at work the other night ask me that and of course when I said 43lb flatty he said he caught a 66lb 2oz blue in lake marion on an ultralight with 6lb test line. I know all of you have heard that before. This is when it got even deeper. Him and some buddies were scuba diving buy the dam with a harpoon gun(illegal)and speared a 178lb 10oz blue and when i asked how they got him up they had went back down and tied a cable to him and drug him up on the bank. That had to be a hard drag up that dike. Needless to say that was the smallest one they saw and were scared to shoot any of the bigger ones. I must say I would have been scared to! I just though that was mighty funny but if your looking for world class catfish just lead down infront of the dam and hold on. THERE ARE FISH THE SIZE OF VOLKSWAGONS DOWN THERE!
