    I have caught a couple 15 pound Channel Catfish.

    Haven't had a chance to go for monsters yet, but I plan on really getting some big ones in the near future.

        Don't you get tired of that smell?

        I never end up catching anything big when I fish, just end up drinking beer and wasting a lot of line/hooks.

              I spent some time going to the Key Biscayne bridge with my fishing pole and bucket. After a week of feeding bait to the fish, I gave up. LOL The fisherman used to make fun of me. Can you believe that?! My fishing dreams were smashed!!! sad

                You should have drank more beer, then they would have respected you.

      Mickey: if ya ever get the chance to fish below Bonneville DAm in the months of May and June....do it! 2 yrs ago I caught a 400 lb 9ft long sturgeon! Biggest fish Ive ever caught. Took 2 hours to land it, measure it weigh it and return it to the river. Seriously, give it a shot.

        They're a blast, aren't they!  I caught a 5' one in Idaho two years ago, though it "only" took an hour to land it.  I haven't been back, but sure intend to.

          I'm happy for you then. Fishermen are such liars, like mushroom hunters.

    I have had some beauties over the years.

    Best fun was a 14' Makko while fishing in an 8' rowboat tongue
    It towed me all over the harbor for 3 hours before I managed to get a tail rope on him, when he ate my outboard motor. lol

    30 lb<estimate> stingray
    12 lb carp
    and a 6 lb bass
    I know...not too impressive. But keep in mind, for 18 yrs of my life I fished a farm pond. Just now started fishing at the river. This year has been my year for nice fish!
