    I just caught my PB channel cat this morning. It's not huge as many people catch a lot bigger but for me it was a personal best. I caught an 8.1 lb channel cat. The biggest channel cat I had caught before was 5lbs. I have come close but never could get over the 5lb mark till today. I join a sportsman club a couple of months ago so I was deciding if I should go there or a lake I hit a lot. Well, I knew I could only fish for about 4 hours so I went to the sportsmen club. They have a 4 acre pond. It was about 9:00am and I was casting out between a deep hole and weed line that has been taking over the pond. I did not have time to get some bluegill so all I had was some catfish dough bait in the blood chicken liver flavor on me. I was using a Matzuo #2 size circle hook (circle hooks are about to win me over as I been doing a lot better with them). I was only casting about 20-25 yards from shore.

    He was returned to the water as soon as I took the picture. Hard to take a picture when your by yourself. I did catch 3 smaller ones and I kept two of those ones.

    Congrats James on the PB Channel Cat! :cool2: Now as far as taking pictures while fishing solo goes, I recommend getting a tripod and using the timer feature on the camera. I fish solo a lot and take many pics this way!
