Believe it or not, I was using a 4.5 foot Quantum ultralight spinning reel combo with 4 pound test. I was fishing with both crappie and bass minnows, not sure which one I caught it on. I managed to get it in after 10 minutes, maybe a little more. It put a nice bend in the ultralight. I managed to catch another cat that went 5.5# and a 5.5# hybrid on the ultralight out of the pond, which is described in the Ultralight Cattin' post.

I have caught a few cats while fishing for smallies on Darby with my ultralight, never got one that big but man what a blast on light tackle!
