    It's embarassing, living in Santee Cooper country with lots of big cats being caught all the time, but my largest on tackle came recently at an estimated 30# plus. I didn't have a scale with me, and I released the fish. My prior best was about 25#, so at least I'm making progress, thanks to advice from some to the best catters on earth here at the BOC. :) I have caught some up to 40# on trotlines before, just not on tackle.

    I've hit the 33" mark several times this past year. I plan on catching some bigger one's in 2006.
