  2. I got home and in bed from the VA catfishing trip around 2:30 am tuesday morning. The wind forecast was good for a window in the morning so i was up before 6 am ...more and off i went to jig some lake trout in search of a real monster. Had my new Ardent C-Force reel spooled up with Gliss line...I was quite impressed! keeping these guys hooked coming up from 60-70ft+ of water doesn't have the greatest success rate usually, but i went 3/4 with the c-force/gliss paired with a light fenwick hmg. It really let me keep the fish cranking upwards without ripping the lure out while just barely squeaking out drag with the big head shakes. Hooked two other fish on two other set ups and dropped both. Fortunately landed this 29" bulldog...getting close to that true monster i can feel it!

  4. almost 4 weeks have passed since i've caught a fish! the longest i've ever gone since i started fishing! Headed down to VA and put that noise to rest with ...more not 1, not 2, but 3 big fat blue cats all weighing in at 39-40lbs on the digital scale. the biggest going 44" and demolishing my PB by 15lbs.

      What a huge fish! Congrats on your PB!
    2. jimbo harwood
      that's awesome.. couldn't ask for a better way to break a skunk streak... great catch Chris.
    3. Can't ask for a better way to break a dry spell than that! What a monster, definitely worth the wait!
    4. Derek Herring
    5. DAAAAAMN!!! Those things are huge Chris!
    6. No long runs or anything but they pull some drag with their thumping
    7. Water pretty cold but they still bulldog hard with head shakes and rolls
    8. Pete Lyden
      They good fighters?
    9. Thats a whole lotta Kitty!!!!
    10. Rich Pardy

  5. This is officially the longest I think I've ever gone without catching a fish. I snagged a sucker in the tail but I'm not counting that! Sure I could go ...more catch something small to break the painful streak, but instead I'm heading south for a monster bluecat! Must end the skunk streak in style!

    1. driving south solved my problem, 3 monster blue cats! rich...that's a heart-breaker losing that fish brother, but a bigger one is going to be waiting for your ...more jig soon!!!
    2. Rich Pardy
      Join the club man, even with this weather I took the skunk this weekend, I did have one nice 6-7 lb bass hooked and got him to the boat and gone!!!! I hooked ...more him on my 3rd cast and thought it was gonna be an awesome day and never got another bite all weekend. Our water temps are still pretty cold at 38 degrees though.
    3. I hear you! Can't find fish here either, finally drive 150 miles and got on a few.. winter.. sucks..
    4. Derek Herring
      Morris is right, time to head south.
    5. Keep driving south Chris!!!
    6. NJ Squatch
      Go big or go home! Good luck in Va
