Big Channel Cat

Pulled this guy in yesterday, was very happy I remembered to bring the net.

Caught on live shad on a curved barb circle hook. It put up a pretty good fight, swam under the boat and spun the boat around the anchor. Had to be real gentle with it, the rod/line/reel were all pretty old and brittle. 10 pound line too. Next time I bait a shad that big (was around 6″) I’ll put it on one of my good 30 pound line cat poles.

Caught in arcadia in 5 feet of water. The scale said 11 pounds but i think its lyin, brand new scale n all. Felt more like 25-30.

Pulled this one in just before the big one too.
