I don't know if I ever caught one before this morning. I had been picking up a few small bass an bluegills along shore using a White Wooly Bugger on a 6 wt sink tip line. I decided to cast along the deep edge of a dock, and this nice channel cat took it. He bent the rod good, and went on a few deep runs before we could get a look at him. My son was along and netted him or me.
