Is it true? Can you tell if it is going to be a large cat verses a small cat based on the speed of the initial run? ~ From my experience~ A large flathead cat~ over twenty pounds will pick up the bait and stroll away usually slowly.. A small flatty or a channel will grab it and speed away. (Usually giving me a mild heart attack when the bait click sounds off.) ~ Whenever I hear the bait click going slow, I prepare myself for a fight~ ** The big cat in my Avatar was real eerie.. Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick... Can anyone else relate to this?
