My buddy invited me to come fish with him and his Uncle yesterday to a "secret hole". Ok,ok just put the gun down, I'll go.So we pick his Uncle up and headed towards Williams. That was the last time I saw civilization. This guy took us over,under,around and through everything but a road! Then we come to a rediculous(how ever you spell it) lookin, tiny CANAL.Im like, are you serious? The whole time Uncle is braggin about 5 to 43#ers.So we bait up (squid from Raleys) and cast as directed. nothin...nothin..... then BAAAAAM!!! My buddy lands a 9.10# cat And Uncle looks at us like, believe me now? Couple nibbles after that but no more fish

I think I might know where you were fishin'. My dad and his buddy used to take me there when I was a kid.
One time we were fishing and I was getting a little sleepy (I think we started the drive to the spot around 4 am) so I found this spot with really high weeds to relax in. The creek (I think Willow Creek?) was only about three feet wide in this spot, but pretty deep. I figured I could throw my chicken liver out there and catch a few Z's while I was at it. So I laid back
in the comfortable grass with my knees holding the rod up, and just as I was about to nod off my rod slams down with a HUGE cat on the other end.
As I'm yelling NET! NET! the fish decides to take me for a little stroll down stream. I never even saw the dang thing 'till I finally got it up to the surface. My dad's buddy netted a 12# Channel Cat and to this day it is still my personal best cat ;D

Oh yeah--getting back on topic-- the creek was right next to a little canal in BFE around Williams. Was there lots of rice paddies and air cannons to scare the birds away?

That is one nice fish man. I caught a couple cats at quarry last week too what a suprise that was :D

I remember my first cat nearing 10 lb.... and my first nearing 20 lb... and my first nearing 30 lb..... lol. You are hooked on catfishing now arent you? I'm mainly a bass fisherman but the lake in my town has great catfish, and I got hooked fast. I might be the first bass fisherman to admit that catfish FIGHT WAY "STRONGER"!!!!!!!

Oh PS. one thing i like to do when catfishing, is catch a cat 10+ and think "wow imagine how big a bass would be this same size." Then you realize how big some bass really are :O
