I have a buddy that caught a 63lb blue cat with a dip net at Marysville Lake. When the owners were taking the cat to the lake the tank airator broke and they didnt know if it was going to live. But my buddy was lokking for bluegill to use for bait and he saw this big tail moving in the water. So he got his dip net and got in the water about three feet and scooped it up. It didnt put up any fight. When he went to pull it up out of the water his dip net broke. So he grabbed the ring of what was left of his dip net and pulled it out of the water and on to the bank. What a way to catch a big fish. I thought i would share that with you all and i would also like to hear what kind of stories you have.
