  2. PB 12.5 lb Channel Cat

    1. ah walmart... thanks
    2. whew. I thought I was the only maniac who had a brand preference for chicken livers! I have found the Perdue at the Hackettstown Walmart and sometimes the Wharton ...more Shop Rite next to Costco.

      I believe they have some at kroger
    4. hold up! where did you find perdue livers!? all i can find is tyson and they aren't as good!
    5. James . 0
      True chicken livers are good because they produce a lot of smell, but you can't also go wrong with some cut shad!
    6. cats will eat anything, but I've found chicken livers are basically crack cocaine for big cats and stripers. Personally, the Perdue livers Ive found to hold ...more up best, but any will do as long as you can keep them on the hook with a cast.

      If you don’t mind me asking what did you catch it on? I am trying to up my catfish fishing game and I need all the help I can get because all I can get are drum
    8. haha yea this year has had some healthy sized ones again which is good to see. the past 3-4 years the contest winners were pretty small. Laurie at Dows was telling ...more me awhile ago how in past years you'd need 10-15 lbers to win the old contests but that its rare to see those anymore. hopefully they make a comeback. very underrated and fun fish to target.
    9. i caught an almost 14lbs channel cat in hopatcong the first year i started fishing about 11/12 years ago.... I haven't caught one there since hahaha. you should ...more do the catfish contest there, the winning fish is usually only like 4/5 lbs

    1. Chicken livers over by Jefferson House. Dont know if food gets tossed in the water or what, but some of the biggest cats Ive caught have been over there. Decent ...more hybrids too. Both fight like monsters. Always fun.

      That's a chunky one!
  6. Fat Channel Cat, 8lbs

  7. Almost lost a finger. Have been putting off spooling a new reel with braid since the season is almost over. Drag was set to tight as hell. This 9lb monster took ...more it for a spin. Had to wrap my fingers around the line(I know!) to keep from losing it. But I landed the fish so all is well. 2 other hybrids and a few cats.

    1. Brady Field 0
      you catch so many of those I wonder if you catch the same ones?! I know that the fish I caught last night I had caught before because he had a huge hole in his eye
  9. Tonight’s contest winner! If I entered, which I did not. 8.5lbs. Makes the Natty Light can look like a shot glass.

    1. haha there is little that compares to fishing at night on LH. I can sleep over the winter.
    2. you really don't like sleeping do you? hahaha
    3. Pretty sure the LH Knee Deep Club Fall Striper contest is this weekend. Had a few bags of herring alongside mine at Dow's. Usually I am the only one this time ...more of year.
    4. Entered what?
