Well I am sitting here looking at the local paper and a 76 year old man has broke the world record channel cat. The state record was 44.5# and the world record was 58#, his channel wieght in at 63#. He was caught on a bush hook and cut bait. He was caught on the Chatawhatchee river, just miles up the road from me. What a trip, and I thought there were no big cats in there. LOL.
