    My 12 year old daughter caught this 8 lbs. Channel Cat while Smallmouth fishing with me in a river. It hit a 2 inch rattle trap , and she fought it for almost 10 minutes in swift current with a 6' med. Ugly Stik and a Zebco 33 Platinum reel with 8 # XL line. This is her best cat to date and on light tackle. -Thanks
