We hit the Juniata Tuesday evenin actually wanted to try to catch some big ole carp. There was so much algae in the water we couldn't fish the bottom cause within minutes our sinkers and hooks were loaded with it. We decided to float some 6 to 8 inch creek chubs we caught for bait. Hoping something big would hit, musky, bass, walleye. I was dumbfounded when this hawg hit. This is the 1st channel cat I've caught in the daytime. It was 29 inches long and prolly weighed 15 lb or more. We gotta git fish scales so we actually know what their weight is.

Nice Kittie.

Better enjoy them now cause the river is low and clear. The bowfisherman will be in that stretch and have everything shot off including the muskie...it happens every year.
