When I saw a wake forming behind the Top Raider I was pulling in, I knew it had to be a big pike. Never heard of a catfish going after a topwater musky lure. I think the huge gut on this fish explains it all.

      No, I was fishing in waders in about 3.5 ft of water. Based on your pic I can imagine that you've seen big musky make a wake while following baits. I was certain ...more this toad catfish was a big pike given that it was Mendota and was surprised when I found out I had a catfish hooked
