    maybe about fifteen pounds. that would be my guess :)
     

  3. I'd say that baby is right about 18 lbs, which is a GREAT channel cat.

    Congrats! :D :D

    Nice cat. They stocked some blues in alum but you really don't hear of many being caught. Being an "eye" guy I can't always tell the differance between a blue and a channel anyway.

    Nice fish but your one evil looking dude in that pic.
     
  6. Silly me - I didn't even read the title of the thread :p I thought it was a channel from the picture.

    Great fish anyway! :D
     
  7. That fish has to go more then that. I caught a 8 lber. at Hoover years ago and that Cat would eat that 8 lber. with no problem.
     
  8. My guess is that cat is a 20lber. Look at the belly on her. Between 18 & 20 for sure. Digital scales are on sale at Wal-Mart on Rte. 23.
