    I got out Friday with Terry Miller from Illinois....Terry is an old pro and has been in the boat with some of the best catfishermen I know including James Patterson, Phil King, Jim Moyer, and Gary Haynes........He was after big cats and was hoping to break his personal best bluecat of 46 pounds.

    I thought we was going to be in for a action packed day right off the bat when the first rod went down before I could get the second one baited...that fish turned out to be a 34 pounder, we quickly boated another 24 pounder then things got slow for awhile so we made a move to our second anchor of the day which yielded 3 cats at 76,40, and 75 lbs.....I told terry that it was extremely rare to catch two over 70 in a day and it looked like Terry had a new personal best at 76 pounds.......until we hit our last spot and caught a 51 incher which weighed in at 82 pounds....we caught one more which looked like a basketball that weighed 26 lbs and called it a day.

    That's a GREAT day by anyone's standard... A dream day by my standards. What kind of tackle set-ups were you using? Rods/reels/line...
