Today I saw a picture of the biggest channel I've personally heard of come out of the MN. The fish was caught last night on LARGE piece of Shad. The fish was 34"x21" and came in at 22lbs and change.

What a sumo!

I got a 35" last year. Never weighed it, but I don't think it was 22lbs.

dtro,

Was it someone who is on a "King of Cats 2007" team?

It wasn't anyone in King of Cats. I also saw the photo. That fish looked like something that would come out of the Red River. Definately the definition of a Sumo channel. It was caught during a metro catfish contest Sat/Sun.

I helped land the fish with no net and i can tell you it was a beast. biggest channel i've ever seen in person. If anyone would like to see the pic head on over to Moore's Bait and tackle. Bob Moore (the owner) caught it, and probably has the pic smack dab in the middle of the pic board. Like Dtro said, it was caught on a pretty big chunk of shad. I'd say atealst a 3 inch long by 1.5 inch wide chunk. Pretty sweet fish!!!!

Here's that giant. As mentioned before it was caught by Bob Moore owner of Moore's Bait and Tackle. He hosts friendly catfish tournies throuhgout the season. I think the next one is tentatively scheduled for June 16th.

Flaco651,

Thanks for the two responces.

The two fish above are nice ones. I saw pic in another forum earlier today of Bob Moores, but still thinks it cool every time I see it. Thanks DTRO! Gives me that sunny afternoon rush to drop what i am doing and head to river.

My brother and I were out yesterday on the Minnesota, caught lots of little guys but then he hooked into something big. We didn't know what it was at first, finally got it up on the bank, a nice 16 lb. channel. Biggest we've caught. Great fish! And on a night crawler too. The cut bait wasn't doing anything.

Thats a dandy! grin.gif I wish there were higher numbers of the larger channels around.

With the state record being 38...you'd think there would be more fish caught that come near 30 anyway smirk.gif
