sorry no pictures, but just thought i should say i caught a 7 pound channel cat on some uncle joshs cheese dip bait.
around 930 p.m. i put a line out on a little bass rod. rod in a balancer for two minutes then wam, tip touched the water and i layed the graphite. this sucker was heavy. i couldn't see anything and was by myself in the boat. after about 5 minutes of huge headshakes i got him in the boat. i dont know about you guys and girls but a seven pound cat on a little bass rod is a good fight for me.

caught in 15 ft of water at collins lake by the lauch ramp, water temp 72 degrees.

Nice cat Lizard...Collins is well known for some big bluegills right sround there as well.

The wife caught one a few years back...right off the dock...

about a foot long, she said.....and she kicked it in the water while I was up taking the boat rental gear back...

The eyes of the others on that dock told the story....some big fish around that dock...for sure ;D

I've never done any catfishing in Collins before, maybe I should give it a try next time I go up there.

Great fish Lizard! Congrats!
