    Whoa....that is a nice one. He's healthy looking too - from what it looks like in the photo. Only thing is,...all I can think about when I see a nice cat like that is peanut oil and fishfry. :) He's prob. a tough ole cat anyway. :wink:

    Thanks for the pic. I'm hoping to do some bank fishing this summer for cats on Lanier if I can find a park that's open at night. Dang ole Corp. haha

    Wow that's huge for Lanier! Isn't the Lanier record channel only 11lbs? My biggest is under 5lbs from Lanier...
