hmmm well i think my biggest channel is about 10lbs.......what about you all?
17.5 pound channel caught on dead gill.
mines about the same as your's at a whopping 12 lbs.
10lbs 2oz. caught last year. I hope to beat that by the end of the year.
i think everybody hopes to beat their best and i got a new scale that needs breaking in...lol i've only weighed one redfish in florida with it...time to put a cat on there
18 for me...caught on cut goldeye.
15 pounds, caught on the gizzard and entrails of a gizzard shad. I have had bigger but did not get to weigh them. 3 one night over 20 pounds busted loose from my super heavy duty hooded, snap/clip stringer. Needless to say, I do not use snap/clip stringers anymore, I don't care how heavy duty they say they are.
23LB the one in my avatar....
i have cought him twice...
once on a gill head and another time on a whole live gill
The one in my avatar...between 27-33 lbs. My scale broke so I used my house scales. The biggest before that was 9 lbs.
22.5LBS caught him an AlfAlfa Doughball (It was my carp line I had out to play with while I was waiting on the cats..)
15.7lbs on dk.....:crazy:
10 pound 2 ounces. I caught him on chicken liver.
A low 7 and a half pounds
A measly 8# on cut shiner I caught our of the same lake. Up until this year it was my biggest cat of all.
mine is a little 2 pound off cut shad
Last Year Me and my friend Karl Brown Caught a String Full of 5#'ers on ross lake chicken liver
The one in my avatar was 23 lbs. on crawfish meat from Walmart, 2 years ago.
It was 33". I got one this year 34", but it was not nearly as heavy a fish. Those fall fish pack it on!! (just like me!)
My favorite bait is fresh shrimp, because I'm lazy and it's easy to get and not messy to use and it will catch fish most of the time. But I do use cut shad, creek chubs, bluegill etc, etc. as well as hotdogs (all beef) and even live bait like green sunnies and goldfish when I feel like going to the trouble. I'll usually always have a line out with a shrimp on it and half the time that's the one that catches fish while I'm dinking around trying to catch bait.
I didn't weigh her but she'd easily go 8 pounds. Don't fish for channels that often but love to catch them when I do. I do go a couple of times a year to a rocky shoreline and catch them under a float in 3' of water. That's where my largest came from. She was long and slender at about 18". In my opinion, pound for pound they are scrapier than blues and I'd like to know where to target larger channels year round. Any ideas for a river like the Tennessee?
My biggest channel was only about 10 lbs., but still fun to catch :smile2:
I think my biggest would only be about 6 lbs.
