I guess mine would be these red drum my son and I caught in the Gulf of Mexico a few years back.
This is the largest catfish I have caught with a rod and reel. I have caught a few much larger catfish running trotlines on a large lake. Lake Texoma to be exact.
Nice one! I used to fish at Texoma many years back. You could stand on top of the spillway and see fish clear as day swimming around twenty feet down. Texoma was dug by prison crews and I believe that they even left some excavation equipment in the bottom as it would cost too much to haul it out.
As a kid, I caught a bluegill that weighed two pounds at Coon Lake in Minnesota at our cottage. I also caught a pike on a baitcaster that was 38 inches long. Not sure of the weight though. no pics, so I might be lyin a bit. (:
although I never reeled it in I once hooked a small white whale, sounds totally unbelievable but it's a true story.
I caught a shark with my bare hands once.
Well actually it was in the shallows in Manly harbour and it was a half a metre long port jackson shark that was half dead and just floating about...........................but i still caught it.
a baluga whale? that's a whale of a tale. (:
yes, it was a baby baluga.
My largest was 49inch (34lbs or so) Muskie up in Northern Ontario many years back. Oddly enough, for a fish that has been dubbed "The 50 hour fish", I caught mine out of pure luck. Just casting around on shore with a Rapala Jerk. We'd been catching smaller Northern Pike all day, so this was a surprise with this Muskie hit. I can laugh now at people who go out and spend $70 crank lures for Muskie. My Great Uncle used to just use kittens for his Muskie/Pike fishing at his cottage in Quebec.
I caught a large stingray while fishing for redfish. I don't know how big it was since I cut the line when I got it up to the boat, but it was pretty damn big. I also hooked a 4' shark that ate a trout I was reeling in, but he broke the line.
I caught a Tuna that was about a couple of feet. Not an amazing feat but I enjoyed it.
I caught a heavy tench many years ago. I haven't been fishing in years and miss it.
WTF I didn't post that, that i remember anyway.
We caught a few small sharks when we we catching red drum and I noticed the guide would rip the line across the sharks teeth so that he didn't have to unhook it.
