    Charles Phillips and I went to Mhoon Landing in Tunica Today and I was finally able to catch a good one.
    I was using a CatMaxx Bait Casting Combo using fresh cut Skip on a Circle Hook with 60# test line in about 40 feet of water in a mild current area.
    We had just set up on a rise showing fish on the bottom and in under five minutes the fight was on. Charles let the anchor rope go and we had the fish in the boat in under five minutes. It was a 44 inch 42 pound Blue cat. We picked up the anchor rope and in the next hour and 45 minutes Charles had landed a 18#, 20# and two 24# Blue cats, The last 24# we put back.
    I can say that the CatMaxx combo is a very good catfish rig and the Circle hooks work great.
    it was a great day on the Mississippi. I tried to put a pic in but apparently to large.
