Stopped by the old dam in Hamilton yesterday and got more than I bargained for. Was throwing a home made crankbait and landed a decent smallmouth. A few casts later I hung something huge. It took off and ran drag halfway across the face of the dam. Im thinking if this is a smallmouth its got to be a 5 pounder at least. I got so excited my hands started shaking. The fish never jumped though so i started thinking big catfish or carp. Sure enough, after a fight that seemed to last half an hour I landed a 28 inch channel that was foul hooked right in the dorsal fin. That was the hardest fight Ive ever had from a fish. Also got a 22 inch channel that ate the crankbait and a 19 inch saugeye.,also on the crankbait. Catfish may not be pretty, but they sure are strong.
