    I went fishin here in town at White oak Park, I was usin shrimp and caught a 5-7lb blue cat!! My first one ever!! He was a beauty.

    I had always thought Blue Cats stayed in river systems. This was a real small pond here in town where people bring thier dogs for walks. It was awsome non the less.

    Great job!
    I'm still in search of my first blue.
    Maybe I'll get him this weekend at the Midwest Mighty Muddy Gathering.
    Hope to see some of you there!

    This little pond is awsome. My buddy and I went out there last night and caught a whole mess of cat ranging from 1lb to 6lbs. We use shrimp and they just can't resist it.
