    My Buddys new personal best 65lbs caught 08/25/2009. The smaller catfish in the net was caught at the same time was 10lbs) We had hard time catching bait tore up the cast net on the second throw. Had to dig out the fishing line to repair the net. After about 45 min the net is repaired and catching bait. Only able to get about 8-10 small shad. Left the area and ran into a school of asian carp. Had 3 jump into boat. We had bait! Get to an old fishing hole we had not fished in for about a year. We ending up catching and releasing 229 lbs of blue cats. 65, 40, 33, 28, 22, 12 and 2 10 lbs. Total fishing time was about 14-15 hrs. What a night!

    What a way to spend my vacation! :roll_eyes:
