up'd my personal best channel cat.
« on: October 18, 2010, 08:45:36 AM »
another fella I met on a catfishing board graciously invited me aboard his boat yesterday for some cattin.  caught my pb which was 14.6lbs.  he ended up landing a 17.7 lb channel within 3 mins of being on the water yesterday.  his personal best as well.  very good day of catting and cant wait to get back out there.

actually he is back in the water to be caught another day.  we caught a bunch of fish.  big fish as well.  10-13lbs was avg.  we threw em all back.  who knows the big one that we boated at 17.7lbs might be a 20lbr next year.
