Default Big Channel Cat 5/13

I took my 5wt to the Susquehanna today. I was actually getting tired of catchin' trout. Every day for the last two weeks, I've been tearin' up the slime rockets! After using a 1wt for the last couple weeks, I almost couldn't pick the heavy thing up!! LOL I'll have to go to the gym more often!
I used 5wt floating line with lead eye woolybuggers. The cat must have been over 5lbs. He pulled drag and made two 50' runs before I could land him.
This was the first time I ever used a SA ReConnect tapered leader system. I purchased a 2X 9' leader system at WalMart for $2.95! The 2X has a 9.5lb tip........ big enough to land a world record!
Also, I purchased a fine mesh trout net at WalMart....... only $6.71!! Can you believe that? I've seen them in other stores for about $50.
I also caught a couple sunfish, but no smallmouth bass today. That's OK, they are probably still spawning.
Tomorrow it's a dry fly day only for this guy. The creeks have come down to normal and the water is clear.
Cheers
