Hey guys, i posted these in the Survival forum as well, thought you might want to see them. I caught one 13lb, one 15lb, three 18lb, and this 20lb blue cat. All were caught on rod and reel, out of the Tn river. I realeased them all after pics. Did not want to eat any this big.

Wow, guys, those are some huge cats......awesome.

When I was a youngster, ( some 40 yrs ago ) on American Sportsman TV show, they had some dudes fishing for Mississippi cats , using whole chickens as bait, impaled on giant hooks, and pullin` them in with chains attached to winches...lol...never forgot that show. I thought, I`m never swimming in the Mississippi.

Youse guys ever hear of " noodling"? Southern thing, I think, and they catch these big cats by hand, first letting the cat bite their hands that they stick into the cats` " hole ", as in the hole where they spend their time, then haul `em out by hand and toss them into a boat.....un real.

Are the big ones not good to eat?

15/18/20 lbs that fish look more than that ;)

Channel cats are the best eatin catfish and smaller one at that. Never can say I 've eaten blue cat but I guess catfish is all good. Personally I like Tilapia better ;)
