    Went fishing this morning, trying to catch bluegill for bait, in the pond in our backyard. While baiting the hook on another pole one of my poles started to get pulled off the dock. Set the hook and after 15 minutes of fighting on ultralight spinning tackle i landed the 13# channnel. Changed to some heavier tackle and after 3 hours i had landed 15 cats. Only one was under 8 pounds.


    Good Luck to All Other Members,
    Brock Whitmer

    Over here in Utah where I live. I would be lucky to catch a catfish over 8lbs anywhere in Utah let alone catch one in my backyard. NICE!! I wish I had a pond in my backyard with big channels. I was wondering if anyone has fished Utah and caught any big cats and where at.

    Sounds like you have a real sweet pond. May want to call out a biologist to see what other species are in there and give you some ideas on how to maintain that fishery.

    Enjoy your pond and all its tasty treats.
