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,

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
