Catfish like corn too:
BTW, I fixed the pole so that about 8" of the tip was sticking above a branch, thinking that if something BIG hit it hard, the lack of leverage would keep the pole in place. Well, I was wrong, lol! This four pound pack of muscle lifted my pole vertically like a rocket, and proceeded to pull it through the branches into the water!
I'll have to say though, this was the best fight ive ever had out of this pond, over ANY Bass I've landed, including the
6 lb 12 1/4 oz! Gaining ground on him, then him running against the drag a couple of times...just awesome!
