  6. These may look like the same fish, but I think they are brothers! Almost exact length and weight. 28.5" = 8#14oz 29" = 8#10oz Wasn't fooled into ...more thinking they were Bass this time. Lost 3 others, and one bigger than these that was ripping drag. They must be putting the feed bags on for the Winter. First cat I've caught in here in 2 years! They sure can fight!

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
