    25lbs is my biggest, caught 5 years ago at Kentucky Lake. At the time it was only 2lbs short of the state record, our state record is now 32 lbs.

    My 16 pounder was big enough for a Florida Big catch Citation and earned me bragging rights for the largest channel cat in the Florida BOC record book....so far...

    I pulled in a 12lb channel out of Baldwin Lake. Aaron Lands will back me up on that one! He netted the boy for me.

    Yes, I can verify the catch. It was definitely a channel, NOT a blue.
