  6. Headed down south for a fishing road trip. I have to admit our expectations were for bigger fish (this blue cat is considered average size!) But considering we ...more don't have blue cats in NJ, Im happy to have caught my PB blue catfish at 25lbs...guess we'll just have to go back soon for those real monsters!
