After several trips to lakes and pounds around the front range this summer I finally magaed to catch the fish I have been looking for. An hour into my trip last nght I landed my best cat this year, she came in at 26 pounds and 36 inches and FAT. Caught on chicken liver. Not much of a fight she tired out fast but none the less awesome.

Thank you very much eevryone for your comments Im still pysched about it. I have been out every other night since then and all I have been getting is smal 10-15 inch cats and small eyes and smallies.
Quick question if anyone reads this, When all you are catching is small cats do the big ones stay away from that area or are they around? When I caught the big girl thats all I caught, no small cats or carp and in the same area.
26 Pounds?. And for your question if i am catching small cats i move if im targeting big ones they could still be in the area but the small cats set in and stay usually. When im fishing for big cats i find areas that had a lot of sign of gills or perch during the day and areas that dont have a lot of crayfish. all my big cats i have caught this year have been fishing shelves and weed lines. Around 10 to 18 FOW.

She had a huge belly on her Jman ill post another pic, but 26 lb on my rapala scale so maybe a tad lighter she was heavy and pics never do a fish justice but oh well. Thanks for the info, the only hard part for me is finding a place that does not have crayfish they are every where and you cant really tell if there gonna be there or not or can you?
