    Hello Everyone.caught my biggest Catfish ever on Rod & Reel on the Kaw last week. I was fishing off the island in the middle of the Kaw around the Turner bridge I think(Im always giving my spots up:big_smile:). I caught it around 6:30 p.m on a whole dead sunfish.My scale broke(thats why im frowning), thats where i need your guys help. How much do you think this beauty weighed?

    Hard to tell Mike. Around 12 lbs. is a good guess though. Looks like a channel cat. has a bluish color to him though, so I wouldnt be able to tell for sure without counting the rays. Im not sure what spot that is. What street were you close to when you walked down to the bank? Youve got a good pic now for a avatar. Nice fish !!!:big_smile:

    Nice fish there, Mike! I was fishing right there off the tip of the island in my boat on Sunday night. Were you able to get out there from the bank when the water was down last week?
