    I had never targeted big cats and had no idea really how too. My personal best was 12 pounds before yesterday. I met up with a guy yesterday who was nice enough to share some knowledge. We had a Phenomenal day. We landed 400+ lbs of Blues. My first fish was a 17 lb then a couple 10-12lb fish and then a 47 lb tank, followed up with a 24 and a 35. Counting only the fish that were 17lb or bigger we had 351 lbs of fish with a 47, 46, and 43 being the biggest. We easily had another 80 lbs in smaller fish to make it over the 400 lb mark.

    Here is my 47
