    Well my biggest started out with a 10 Pound flathead, and it took a long time to get to where I am at today, I am still below the 50 Pound mark but someday I hope to catch a 50 Pounder + . this year so far I have broke my personal best three times. 30 Pound flathead, 39 Pound flathead , and now a 48.11 Pound Flathead. My biggest bluecat is 18# maybe someday I can get taught how to fish for them big blues, some reason I must be holding my mouth wrong or not doing something right. Any members who would like to teach a old dog new tricks ??

    I just enjoy being out there. If I catch a fish then its a bonus and if not then I am just happy to get out and fish. The past couple of nights the sky is unreal. (lol)

    Now can someone talk to the big guy for me and see if he would let me catch a 50 plus fish..lmao :crying:

    I'm a newbie to the BOC (must say I love it here). Kinda a newbie to catfishing (although I have been fishin' for most of my 39 years). I'm a converted Bass fisherman thanks to my very good friend Martin. When I was 10yrs old I caught two back to back 5lb. kiddies.
    Please forgive me for telling yall this one. But, since the question was asked "the biggest fish", I'd like to say that would have to be the 11.5lbs. Large Mouth Bass that I released back to fight another day.
    By the way, it has taken me over 30+ years to catch one that large.
    Talked my son into fishin' with a plastic worm, and on his first cast he cought a 11lbs + bass. First time using a lure! It only took him 8 years.
    Now we are on the hunt for lots of fat cats. We don't catch many bigger then 4lbs. but the action is very steady all night long. By the way, them Bass don't taste near as good as them cats do.

    my biggest was last night, actually I broke 2 of my personal bests, I was trying to break 15lbs on the flatties, and caught a 35lb. I was also trying to break my 21# blue , I caught a 52lb blue and a 24lb blue. I caught all of these fish in the same spot in about 4 hrs time. Definitely a night I will never forget as long as I live.

    Don't you love threads like this. I enjoy hearing what everyone's been catching.

    I'm with DH on the good year it's been. Except I can't catch a 48 lb Flatty, LOL.

    Last year, my personal best was a 34 lb Blue. That's changed a few times this year. 37.5, then 51, 54 & finally 56. All blues. The day I caught the 37.5, I also had one that straightened out my 6/0 Kahle after a 15 minute battle. I still believe that fish was much bigger than the others I've caught this year. Every time I tell the story though, my estimate gets bigger :D

    There's some guys on here who have caught some very large fish. I hope I can break my record again before the years up. If not, maybe I can break it 3 or 4 times in '06, LOL.

    My biggest fish ever was an 88 lb spoonbill I caught back in 1986 out of the Neosho river. My biggest cat was a 77 lb flathead my cousin and I caught from the Neosho when we were running limb lines in 1981. My biggest cat on a rod is a 39 lb flathead...my next biggest was a 36 lb blue. I got a 38 lb big mouth buffalo last spring on my lite action whitebass rig. Also got a 10 lb wiper and a 15 lb blue on the same rod during the wb run. Those three are all major league fights on a light rod.
