3 fish caught | Lunker: 30lb Channel Catfish using a Mackerel

Went out 3-20 to do some cat fishing in the rain. Went to rattlesnake island In 15 feet of water and hooked a MONSTER in the first 20 minutes! Got him close to the boat after a 10 minute fight and my pole snapped in half! I was able to hand line him up and he wouldn't fit in the net so I had to grab him by the gills and pull him into the boat. I didn't weigh him but I'm guessing it was around 30 pounds. I released him back into the lake. Biggest Cat I have ever caught!

Weather: Windy Air Temperature: 61-70 F Clarity: Clear 1 fish caught

First visit to clear lake this year and it did not disappoint. Although the weather wasn't perfect as it was fairly sunny but with some wind it was pretty good conditions. Bass were in full spawn mode on beds throughout the shallows. All the bass we caught were nice size ranging in the 2-4lb range and hitting drop shot set up with robo and a goby style plastic. Caught one late in the evening on a senko about 4 1/2 pounds. Great Lake! Gotta visit clear lake!!
