    the night started out extremely slow.. i had to resort to bass fishing with my other poles to keep myself from being too bored.. even then i didnt catch anything. it got to about dark and a couple college kids parked their boat right on top of our bait and started catfishing so we moved out stuff. at about 12:30 i had a huge hit and the fish about pulled my pole and the pole holder into the water, i set the hook and missed.. i reeled in my bait and looked at the size of the gill i had on there and realized it was too big for the fish to swallow probably so i switched to a smaller gill and 3 minutes after it hit bottom, bingo. i set the hook and then the drag started screaming bloody murder. i lost probably about 50 yards of line before i could start taking it back in. i thought i had the fish of a lifetime. a couple minutes later i landed him and it was an 8.5 pound channel.. not quite as big as i expected but still a new personal best for me:smile2:
