It was fun... this was the 2nd time I have caught a Cat on this lake. Caught one back in 2010. It weighed 4.5 lbs.
Each time they are tucked up tight against the bank and when they get hooked they make a dash for the middle of the lake or the nearest snag. Bulldogging along the bottom the entire time. That guy put quite the bend on my 6wt. I was fishing 10lb stren flouro for tippet. So I horsed him in rather quick because if I had let him run for long he would have had me wrapped and I would have been cutting line.
