I was there today with 1 little pole, 8lb line and tiny hook trying to catch bait fish and 3 big poles trying to catch giant cat.

Caught nothing on the big pole, but something took the bait on my tiny bait pole and just ran, I didn't know what it was, but it was something really big to a point that my pole couldn't handle. All the lines, about 150 yard were gone in 20 second, when I almost ran out of line, I tie up reel and it broke.

I was using nightcrawler and a tiny hook, the way it pulls felt like a carp, but I am not sure if carps will eat worms, it was probably a big cat. When I first caught it, it felt like I got stuck on a tree at first, then 2 second later it just took off.

Not sure what it was or how big it was, but from my feeling, even if I hook it on the big pole w/ 20lb line, It would probably still be a big fight, definitely something big.

I had fun, definitely going back in a few weeks. :D

A friend's grandson caught a 19lb flathead next to the bank on a nightcrawler last week. He was pretty well beat when he got that one in and he's a 12 yr old hard working country boy. A proud one at that .:)

The weird thing about that place is that I was not able to catch any bait fish. I might have to bring bait fish from other lakes next time or buy some eel/nightcrawlers.
