The fish was fun to catch and actually had my drag screaming a little, but it wasn't a striper. It felt heavy more than anything else. I generally hate catfish, but I'd imagine a 60 lber would be a heck of a good ride. Break out the chicken livers. Oh, I got the weight for the record from this site.
Ya'll would have had a good laugh watching me trying to pick the damn thing up. I'm actually a little scared of them, been finned before.
Fishing kills me exactly as it keeps me alive.
