I couldn't agree more. That catfish just would not come in. It gave my 8wt a workout. I would get him close and he would just pull away. I honestly didn't think that I would land him. It got pretty gnarly when he hit the fast moving water. I had to chase him, get spooled, or lose him.

My crappy little cell phone camera didn't do the catfish much justice regarding size. I have Godzilla hands and I couldn't get my hands around him. It was probably one of the biggest channels I've caught.
