Finally landed a big blue cat from the kayak!

On a slab and light bass gear. I thought I was onto a world record striped bass the thing nearly flipped me over.

Guess on weight?! I can say this was very difficult to hold it up like that.

Thanks guys!!

On that light bass rod I had the the fight of my life! Did not help that the reel had backlashed and once the fish reached that point I basically did not have any drag it was all on the rod/reel.

I'm not sure how bass guys break these rods on 3 lb fish because it held well on this guy.

Luckily my buddy had a big net he paddled over and let me borrow it. The fish immediately bottomed out my knock of boga grip that goes to 20lbs.

What a rush!

I haven't had much luck with the big cats down here but using some tips from Drew the other day I caught some good carp including my first (and PB) grasser.

I think I’m gonna try some serious catfishing this summer. Drifting and jugging.
