I know of several that went 12-15 lbs. I doubt you would pull a 60 pounder out of there...

Where are they getting them. Up in the shallow water by the covert, or out in the main lake?

We used to get them all over on the lake when I lived on it. Talk about fun,fishing for walleyes and the next thing you know, bam,15 lb cat on 6 lb line. We have gotten some close to 20 lbs. This was quite a while ago. Back when my sister used to own the Supperclub and Ballroom.

My biggest is 23#, about 5 years ago. Most average around that 10-13# range.

Most of our cats have come from along the weed lines, but we have caught them all over the lake.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!

      MN DNR is the most authoritative resource even though it may take a little getting used to. You can also study the contours on this website to identify humps and holes.   Minnesota Fishing Contours

      Looking for a freeze up on Friday.  Temps will have been favorable for over a week and then the wind lets up.

      I am not that talented to carve and paint like that. But I love wooden duck decoys.
