    I had an AWESOME run on channel cats last night. Broke my previous PB of 9lbs 3 times! I stuck the first one about midnight on some small whole shad. The crappy spring scale on my lip grips said 12.5, I'm a horrible judge of weight, but I thought it was bigger. Matt (boombalaty) swore the thing was pushing 20. He called Shelby and Rob drove over to our side with this digital scale. It went 13.6 :eek:oooh::smile2:! Oh well, still a new PB.

    About 30 minutes later, I hear a PLUNK, one of my cat bobbers is gone. This time it was about an 8lb'r. About an hour after that I get 2 back to back, one went about 11.5 and the other 14.25 (estimated from being 10.5 and 13.25 on my scale). All in all it was a great night. Matt and Erica, thank you guys so much for supplying the bait, I got stuck at the office till 9pm and couldn't catch my own:angry:.

    I don't think there are any pics of the 8lb, and the others I'm not sure which is which. 2 were CPR'd and 2 went home. My mom has been begging me for some fish, so this should keep her off of my back until spring:smile2:.

    BTW, don't stick your hand in a big channels mouth, it sucks.

    That first one had a head on him like a bulldog, and the death roll of a gator! I can't believe I actually tried to pick him up by the jaw:embarassed::roll_eyes::smile2:! I got a little excited.

    If you are going to a lake, best advice I can give you came from Rick Porter yesterday, fish the water that is half the depth of the lake. Mine weren't picky about bait, I got one each on small whole shad, big cut shad, bluegill head and cut bluegill. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

    Those are some nice fish, congrats. The Kat Bobber seems the way to go for those big channel. Those bigguns fight like crazy. My biggun did the death roll too, lol.

    Congrats on a new PB Garen.Those are some nice looking channel cats. I also managed to catch a PB of my own. Here are a few pictures of the flathead I caught on the other side of the lake last night. The third picture is a picture of you from last night. BTW thanks for sharing the beer with me.
