    a friend of mine and b.o.c. member,Mike AKA carp46755, put on a "big cat shootout" on my home water. im not much of a tournament guy so i didnt enter. i should have i guess because i caught the biggest channel cat, i have caught from cedarville reservoir, in 15+yrs! normally i would have just photoed and released it but this fish needed bragging upon. lol i took it to the ramp so Mike could get a official weight and to let him rest in the live well before the release. the length was 32.25 inches and he weighed 15.6#.

    a big thanks to Mike for the weight and pictures at the ramp. the fish swam away, after reviving it for a few min., to fight and breed another year.
