So aparently fishing with a boat is good stuff. This weekend Seth and I drove about 25 miles up the Kerr-Megee (sp?) barge channel in Tulsa in search of that mythical monster catch of a lifetime catfish. Around 4 AM I pulled in this guy on dead stinky shad resting on the bottom. My net wasn’t big enough so I had to beach em to get em out. Had to tie him to the side of the boat to get him back as well, couldn’t fit em in the live well even curled in a circle.
The next fish I set hook on broke the line on the same pole that I caught this one on – must be a lot of these big boys in that river.
Unconfirmed weight 40-45 lbs. I need a bigger (an functional) fishing scale.
