    Was fishing for flatheads and hooked into my PB channel cat. It weighed 13lbs. This is a really big fish for this part of PA. She fought like a train! Better than a 13lb flatheads. I'm happy!

    Thats a nice one you got there Blacky. I was just wondering this myself does a channel fight harder than a flathead of the equivalent weight. After catching one myself about two weeks ago I wondered. Shortly after the catch I was like I had channels of similar size(or smaller) fight spin more than this guy did..... I pulled one myself of the Skuk about a month ago about that size. Maybe we should do a poll............????????. I have caught channels in the Delaware of that size they are out there Blacky..........Congrats again......

    Sweet fish man! Sometimes it's disappointing to catch a channel while you're fishing for flats, but when they're that big you can't complain.

    I wouldn't say its dissapointing well at least to me especially if its anything over say 6lbs. Well maybe to Blacky because he is a dedicated flat hunter.....:wink:
