Got out for a bit the other night for some catfishing. Tried to fish the DuPage River for some channel cat's with no luck. Anyone ever fish the Duper for cats? With that not producing, we tried an old spot that I pretty much forgot about & landed a huge Channel Cat. Drag just started peeling off the reel! Once my heart was back in my chest, I fought the beast for what felt like forever. I had one heavy duty rig set up & my spinning outfit for bass fishing & he hits the bass pole, figures! The pic is not the best, but you can get the gist of it.

We were using live roaches & frozen shad, the roaches were producing big bullheads & the big boy came on the shad.

Very nice catch, I can see how you pulled up alot of bull heads with the roaches.

Nice catch on Frozen Shad. This year I might get stuck buying frozen shad, there is more asian carp than usual in the ottawa pool and cutting that stuff is nasty + the fish don't care for it.
