Re: Catfishing at Valco Ponds...
Hey snagger, when fishing the livers, I've found that most people try to overthread them, just a couple times through and if you can catch a membrane, that's great. As far as line goes, for cats at Pueblo, I reccomend 10 lb test. I love fighting cats on 6 lb and light gear, but those Pueblo cats can get large. My personal best from Pueblo is 23 lbs and I know I've been broken off by larger ones. I once caught an 8lb er that had five hooks still embedded in her lips with various lengths of line attached, looked like a whole new set of whiskers had grown in. But, whatever test you decide to go with, just remember to set your drag and have fun playing the fish, and if you're concerned at all about your drag, while fighting the fish, just switch on over to backreel and that way, you can control the fish.
Good Luck! Good Fishing!
