I guess if you wait long enough it will eventually happen. Hey Bearcat and Buzz check this out. I was fishing Glenn Shoals tonight, I had been there about 3 hours and had only 1 little channel. I was using live bluegill with the tail cut off and descaled on one side. At about 1:45AM right where we anchored the pontoon the last time I brought in a 30lb channel cat 38" long.
That is my biggest fish ever. I brought it home and got pictures, weighed it, and showed my dad. Then I got it back to the lake and after about 15 minutes of CPR it took off lookin good. I hope to have some pictures in a few days.
:rock-big: I hear you Bro!!!!!!!!!!30lb channels are rare and you have surely nailed a trophy catfish.We have plenty of the small ones ,but nothing like that bear.Good job!Is your face sore from grinning<<<<<<<<lol>>>>>>>>>?
As soon as I got home I checked to see what the state record was and its 45lbs 6oz, or something like that. But I bet there aren't too many 30's caught in a year. Its great to finally have a big one.
I hope the pictures turn out, we don't have a digital.
Way to go Donnie. When I first read your post I thought it was a flathead. I read it again and seen you had caught a monster channel cat. I think a 10 pound channel is big where I fish, would love to hook into a 30 lber. Your photos turned out great, if I catch a channel close to that size here in Ohio I will wearout my digital camera.
