tell a story of your personal best cat, post a pic if you can...

heres mine: it was last summer at my nieghbors tank and I was using an ultra-lite spinning rig (4 lb test) for perch. using a 1/32 oz. white with gold eyes deer hair jig. (made it myslef). I fished all day catching atleast 100+ hand sized perch and some even bigger. I said to myself before I left "one more cast for luck." The cast was pefect, right beneath an overhaging cini-bean(sp?) limb in 3' of water. in the middle of my retreve it felt like I was hung up, but "IT" started moving. I new right then and there it was a big ol' cat. after 55 minutes into the fight I saw it. boy it was one huge cat. especially for 4 lb test line. finnally after what felt like an eternity I had with in hands reach. I latched onto its bottom lip and hauled her up the bank. that bluecat wieghed in at 25lbs measuring 36" long. sounds kinda puny but I don't target catfish as much as I used to. although I have cought bigger cats this was my favorite.

My best is a twenty pound even. The day I caught her was one of the best days I have ever had also. Fishing the Tennessee River, my wife and I caught over fifty fish between six and twenty pounds. Most were around twelve pounds. Could have caught more, but there was a lot of barge traffic that day. We caught over a hundred fish in three days.

My best

My best cat was a 22# Blue caught at Lake Whitney off of Jimmy's dock on a dead waterdog about 8" long some bass fisherman threw up on the dock before we got there. I tried them since then but had no luck since. We released that one, but we caught a 12# blue same day on a dead Gizzard Shad and we kept him for the Skillet.
