Went out last night on the Wabash at West Lafayette with Justin (Shad Man) and Mike (wellman450r) for some post rain catfishing. It was a pretty wet evening and the Wabash is still really low, there were several places we didn't know if we'd make it thru. We got out around 6ish and cast the net for some shad and then set up above a nice hole midriver. Justin started off the evening with a couple of nice channels in the 2 lb range. Then around 8:45 the spool on my pole starting singing. At first it didn't seem all that big, but after a 10 minute fight to the surface, we got the first look at a monster blue. Since we'd been fishing for channels I had been using a 5/0 eagle claw circle hook. After seeing that fish I was a little concerned about the quality of my hook! All in all the fight took about 25 minutes to finally get the fish to the net. The fish was sure enough a very large female blue catfish that easily bottomed out our 50lb scales. We all guessed it some where in the 60lb range, but as soon as I can get the pictures up I'll let you guys take some guesses at the weight. After a quick photo op she was released back to the water to fight another day. I knew there were blues in the Wabash but I never would have guessed they would be this far North or anywhere close to this big...anyone else seen a 50lb+ blue come out of the Wabash?
