Wrong species new un official lake record

Recommended Posts

Is it a blue or channel? Initial reaction was a blue but the more I look at it the more I think giant channel. The best indicator got covered up.

I’m not sure a few people I’ve talked to say channel. The lake has no record of blues and the channel cat record is like 12 pounds. Have no idea of weight or length. But pretty sure it’s 50 pound range

If you have any pictures without the anal fin covered it would be easy to tell. Blues have a straight fin, channels are rounded. If it was a channel, it could have beaten the state record as well since it's listed at 36.5lbs. 

 

This was a 40lb blue for size reference.

This is a better view of what I mean by the straight fin.

and the much more rounded fin of a channel cat.

Congrats for the un-official record and catching the ugliest looking bass in the lake. :lol:

Yeah it was.  I hooked another cat in the exact same place on the lake 5 days later. On a dropshot ml rod 10 pound lineand fought it for 56 minutes trolled it about a half mile to the bank and it came off at the boat. Same friend was with me for both fish we think the one that got away was even bigger. Huge cats are taking over one of my favorite Bass honey holes. Go figure
