Illinois hunting and fishing

Species: Catfish

Size: 50.4 pounds

Date: May 11, 2012

While jig fishing with my wife for sauger and crappie. I thought I had snagged bottom, until the snag started swimming away from the boat. An hour later I netted the largest freshwater fish I’ve ever caught!

Holy crap! One hour fight is damn crazy. I’m used to catching chinook salmon and halibut but one hour is a real serious war. Great job!
