Hey everyone,
I was out just goofing around catching panfish on my utralight rod and reel and I was thinking about the biggest fish I have caught on ultra lights. So, I am curious to see what is your biggest fish on ultra light gear say, 6# line or less?

I caught an 11 pound Pike, and a 23 pound carp on 6lb fluorocarbon while drop shotting. While the Pike is not a giant, I felt pretty tickled to get that thing in with it's mouthfull of teeth on 6lb line.
I am not afraid to suck.

Not ultra-light, but I was fishing a Roostertail on a 5'6" light-power spinning rod with 6lb test Stren nylon mono and got bit by a 33" channel cat. It took 17 minutes to land it. At the time, I was carrying a scale that went only to 8lbs so I don't know the weight - 16 to 20 pounds perhaps. I only have a very poor quality cell phone photo of this catch. It was a great fish fight though!

Not 6# but 10# mono caught on a freshwater spinning rod & reel. The fish was weighed as it was sold to a chef in Key West, 1975 It's a Cobia

There are other memorable catches on light tackle, but those pics have never been scanned.

Over 6 pounds on an ultralight with a one-inch white grup attached to a 1/64 jig head on 6 pound test at a Maryland pond.

Don't know who was more surprised, me or the big lady. :D :D :D

Hey Sam, I went out today fishing that little grub you gave me just to have some fun and catch some panfish. It did pretty well!

I live on a lake in Wisconsin that produces a ton of BIG channel cats (as well as a major smallie factory) and you catch lots of big cats over 30" on a dropshot rig with 6 lb. line. I've caught a lot of big cats fishing for gills as well with slipbobbers and ultralights. Biggest caught on the DS was 35" or so (estimate to be 17 lbs or so), and the biggest on my bobber rig was a 38" behemoth that was loaded with spawn, (guessed her to be in the 23-24 lb. range). I actually caught that one with 3 lb. mono! Took a while..

Biggest fish I have ever seen landed on an ultralight was a 47", 46. 2 lb flathead catfish my buddy caught while fishing the river for walleyes this spring - 4 lb. line. That was awesome.

When I lived in MN I caught a 36" Muskie one light tackle and 6lb mono. It ate a 10" walleye that I was reeling in. At one point it let go, came back and when I landed it it had my little 1/8 jighead stuck right in the corner of its mouth. The poor walleye was a mess. I was fishing from the bank and by the time I finally landed it everyone else who was fishing the area had surrounded me to what the heck I was catching. It was great fun.

I hate catching big fish on light lines, it has a tendency to do too much damage to the fish. That said, we were fishing dink smallies on a river in WI that will go unnamed. I had about 15 fish up to about 14" and just having a blast. Cast next to a big rock mid current and my line just started peeling. ended up a 22" fish that was in excess of 7. Caught her on 4lb Seaguar spooled on a Sustain 1000 set on a Loomis SMR750-S.
Brown fish are better than green fish.

A 1" twister on a 1/32 oz. jighead, 4# mono. Mid april, Belleville lake with my wife. Just trying to catch anything, i hook into 45+ in. musky. Got her to the boat twice, probabally about 5 minutes (felt like 15)i finally try to collar her, lifted her head out of the water- it shook, and i let go. Down it went, snapped the line, my wife took some photos when it got close to the boat, and one when i lifted her barely out of the water. (i don't use a net) I guess i really didn't catch her after all...never mind.
will fish for fun
