    Well, I got my biggest blue cat ever today!!!! One of the first blues I ever caught was in the 30lb range and for almost 2 years the biggest I'd caught was a 20lber, well today I got one that went 45-1 :wink: We were at our last spot when we decided to move just about 25yrds. Tried pulling the anchor up but it was stuck, ended up having to cut the rope but instead of quiting we decided to tie up as best we could and am I glad we did! He made one heck of a run to start with, I was beginning to think that my little 6000 wasn't going to have enough line but I finally got him turned and kept him (he probably kept himself) out of all the pilings next to the bank. We managed to get 2 pictures before the camera died, thank the Lord. We got him on a Carolina rig with a float on 3 small shad. Thanks Randy, if it weren't for ya figuring out about fishing the humps I'd have never caught that fish, you're the man!!

    Yeah, I sure was glad when we had him in the bottom of the boat! Got a couple of quick pictures and off he/she went to grow and fight another day. I don't know if I have "calmed" down yet but at least my hands have stopped shaking:smile2:
