    Went fishing on Saturday at a lake in southern indiana and caught my personal best blue cat at 41 lbs. Caught him on the front point of an island close to deeper water. Used a skipjack cut in half fished on bottom.

    Thanks everyone! I was really excited, I've fished for blues for the last couple years but hadnt been able to get one over 20 lbs. It was a really hot day and the water temp was 88 degrees so I really had to take my time getting him in. Only kept him out of the water about 60 seconds then threw him back. He was ready to get back in for sure and swam off strong.
