Me and some buddies were out catfishing last night night. The one guy had a real nice solid run he set the hook and nothing there, so he thought. He reeled up and on the end of the line was just the head and a few guts of a 6-8 pound channel cat. It stunk really bad so it had been dead for some time. Do you think a bigger cat had ate this one and then my buddy pulled it out of its mouth. or was this something just floating downstream and hooked his line when he reeled in. The thing is when we threw the cat remains back in the river it floated and if he hooked them while reeling in, it would have had to been sunken.

My guess would be, that it was dead, and that part was just flowing down the river and it happened to grab his line. I could easily be wrong though.

Ya that or a flat did try eating this fish but ended up spitting it out while laying on the bottom and it just so happened to get stuck on a branch or structure on the bottom.

Maybe it was the ghost of Kitty Past, taking one last run?

Turtle!

I guess it would depend on how fast the current was, the size of your bait fish and the strenth of your clicker. Maybe I could see it floating into your line. I would say turtle was being greedy grin

Maybe he hooked a big fish after it swallowed the bait and while in the gut it hooked this half digested big channel cat head.

I think that makes for a good story whistle

I think that I am going to have to agree with Shack. I think that a turtle hooked that onto his line, then speed off with a big grin on its face.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
