KOTC St Croix Channel Cat Upgrade

11 posts in this topic

Picked up a beautiful 30" X 19.5" = 49.5 point KOTC channel cat upgrade from the St Croix tonight. Picked him up on fresh cut sucker at 2030. Got another channel at 2146 that was a beaut too at a fat 29" fish but it was not an upgrade for me. Channels are really hammering cut bait - I had a struggle getting the rod out of the rod holder when he hit.

Variety -- it is the spice of life, eh? Nice fish Steve! I'd rather catch a channel like that than 5 of the tiny flatheads I've been getting. Those big channels put up a fight!

I got one last week on a 7" bullhead so they are feeding pretty heavy right now. The one I caught after this one was 29" and really fat too. I was fishing a chunk of cut sucker about 2" X 3" on a 5/0 circle hook and he was hooked solid right in the corner of the mouth. They hit the bait so hard that the rod just buckles over in the rod holder.
