I fished a new to me body of water today. Lake Tillery is a shade over 100 miles from my house and I heard some goods things about it so I decided to make the long drive.
The lake seemed similar to another lake I have been fishing so I decided to fish it the same way. Drifted cutbait over channel breaklines. Mostly I fished in 25-30 feet of water.
I only caught 2 cats. One was a dink channel cat that was about 5 lbs the other was a good size blue my PB so far. My partner, who is a cat man estimated it to weigh upper 20s to 30lbs.
My camera mount broke today so a guy in a pontoon boat took the picture. It was a very strong fish and caused a bit of pandemonium in my yak when it crossed my other line and crossed my drift sock line too.

nice! do you catch or net your own bait for the cutbait?

Ron I try to catch my bait. I can usually fish for an hour at the beginning of my trip and get some gills,perch,crappie!whatever. I also save and freeze those same species and use the frozen bait too. I have bought frozen shad and menhaden and those work just as well.
I never used a cast net. I’m not sure how difficult it would be to throw one from my kayak. It’s an option though.

Them giant blues are pretty. Congrats on the PB, long drive, and a total win.

Lol I need more dink 5 lb cats in my life. That titanic blue is a real beauty. A species I need to check off the list.

I never thought that a 5 lber would be a dink but compared to those big boys they get dink status. I actually got that from a YouTube guy. His channel is “kayak catfish.” Good videos that are worth a look in these quarantine times. He calls 10 lbers dinks.

Holy crap that would be a tussle in a yak. That’s awesome you were to land her and lap her at all for a pic. Congrats Joe!
