hit up deep quarry with my dad from like 9 i think to 1130. were walking up to the spot and you can see some catfish right off the ledge in about 8 feet of water. i dropped my perch rig down there and the cat i was fshin kinda spooked and swam off. came back and while im fishin a wacky worm he inhales my minnow so i drop the rod and set the hook. after about a two minutes fight on an ulrtalight with 4 lb test i landed the 24" 7 lb channel. it was a very fun fight and we took him home for dinner. ive never had catfish before so we just had to. about a half hour later though i look down and see another nice one that somehow messed himself up in some old line. my dad dropped a jig in there and got it stuck on the line. after a few quick snaps with the rod the cat was free. at least we saved one life with the one we took. hopefully pics soon.

yea way to go ded fisher!! me and my buddies fish quarry a lot and have had minimal success with the largeys lately. We'll get one here and there, but nothing impressive. The bass are definitely moving around though, on multiple occasions we've seen bass pushing 5 lbs!!

In regards to the catfish, the catfish there are very unusual. I hooked one, well had one on on my dropshot for a good 3 min last year. I got her over the ledge and she spat out my weight she did'nt even have my hook, i thought it was kind of funny.

Way to go though, I'm sure the catfish tasted mighty good.
