I use mono leaders all the time so the cats can't see what is about to catch them!

Re: Channel catfish size comparison

i do not use a leader, ever. my slip rig already has three knots in it so i dont need anymore. I also tie UNI knots they say they retain 98% of original line strength with braids, dont know if its true but its the strongest knot ive ever used

OK I am going to ask something stupid...do you need leaders with power pro...would a monster cat care...or is there another reason?...seems like the more knots you have the more chance for lineus interruptus...

Re: Channel catfish size comparison

I just bought one of those aquaview cameras last summer and in a couple of choice spots in lonetree i saw some cats cruising around in there that were just downright disturbing in size. I would like to put a treble hook on the camera with a piece of cut bait and plug my video camera into the output and tape a catfish coming to dinner... but it cost to much to try something that wild with it just yet, maybe when i get boerd with it........

I plan on saoking the biggest bluegill I can catch this year all night at Pueblo. A few years ago I hooked into either a big cat or wiper. I was using 50lb Power Pro and 40lb leader with a fat bluegill, it finally broke the leader off on a rock or snag. It was a weird fight, it just kept going at a medium steady pace straight out and I could not stop him. I think he knew right where to break me off! We should have an all nighter down there pretty soon with all the forum members!!!

Standley has a good chance yes. But I would also add Jackson, Boyd, and Lonetree to that list. I have seen big cats taken out of there like they were going out of style and have been spooled several times from each of those lakes on big cats.
