Location: Topeka Kansas Henry's Pond
Fish: Channel Catfish
I got this fat cat at Henry's pond. I was fishing with a pfluger ultralight spinning combo using a minnow on a slip bobber set about 12". The cat took around twenty minutes to land and thankfully a fishing buddy was there to help net the massive cat. The fish measured 30 inches but I did not have a set of scales to weigh the C-cat. I look like it was ready to drop its eggs and I did release the fish after measuring and taking a couple of pictures. I have caught a number of trophy Flats and C-cats there and usually always on ultralight gear. I enjoy the sport much more when its a fair fight.....
