Lets see your personal best channel cat

Discussion in 'Catfish Discussion' started by flathunter, Jul 28, 2005.

  1. My personal best was 33 inches and I turned it loose without taking any pictures as i had no idea that a channel that large was a true trophy. The potlicker chomped down on my fingers when I grabbed him by the jaw and it really hurt! :( Had a heck of a time getting him to CR me :D until I put him back in the water. :) Now I wish I would have taken a picture. :rolleyes:
     

  2. wish i could post pic of the one i got with shortdrift.it was nice. how much did it weigh flathunter,thats a great looking fish!

    I sure know it doesnt compair to what some of the good folks here have caught but it is my best no the less. It was caught on 12 # test and boy did it stretch every bit of that line. Was a great fight.

    Nice Post Buddy,

    Hey, I'd love to see a pic of my PB Channell Cat, too bad YOU DROPPED IT INTO LAKE LOGAN BEFORE TAKING THE PICTURE!!!!!

    :D That was the 1st decent fish eithe rof us had caught in the 3 years we've been fishing together! That thing had to be at elast 14 pounds right? ;) (Okay well, just over 10.)
     
  11. Gotta agree with you on this being a good thread. :) Dumping the fish befor taking a picture is almost as bad as my cutting Husky's head off when I took the picture of him and the 13+# channel at Attwood. :eek: If you think about it, the picture without Husky's face isn't all that bad. :p ;)

    This says 12lb Channel. I had to think when it was caught, it was real early this spring on the Sciot at a place Jack 7 i call "The Death Drop". We must have used Jacks scale, to me it looks like a 9-10, but it must have hit 12. I dont think Jack or I either one lie about fish, maybe its the camera/pic angle or something.

    If I remember correctly this one was slightly over 20. Caught on live chub @ Cowan Lake 3 years ago. Haven't seen one over 5 this year.
