KOTC St Croix Channel Cat Upgrade

7 posts in this topic

I can feel all you guys breathing down my neck trying to bump me from that 5th place spot on the Green Channel Cat KOTC Board. I managed a little breathing room tonight - at this stage of the competition every point counts.

I picked up a 33" X 18" = 51 point channel cat at 11:30pm Thursday night on a jumbo 7" bullhead. I was fishing for flatheads and this guy just hammered my bullhead. I thought he was a small flathead until I netted him and he went nuts all over my boat.

It was a beautiful night to be on the water.

Wish I could have been out tonight...but I had car troubles and didn't get out to the Bullie pond until it was too late.

But Steve I know how you feel being in the 5th place spot about to get bumped out. Hopefully I can upgrade my smallest Flat now (44.5" x 25.5"). Nice upgrade Channel Cat, I should really target them occasionally.

What was the girth on that pig... No not the cat.... the Bully....

And how does the JUMBO compare in relation to the "Barely Legal"

He was 7" long if you use my elastic tailor tape to measure him. He was a bit beefy too and when I casted him out he was so strong that he kept pulling clicker runs. I almost missed the cat picking him up and running because I thought it was just the bullie again. He was making so much racket down there I'm not surprised something came looking to see what all the commotion was about. I love those kind of bullheads,

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
