well im asking this question because in this months
coloradofisherman  he says he uses 3/4 - 1 oz egg sinker

ok well when i go fishing i use a 1- 5 oz of lead
a 2/0 - 5/0 circle hook
and either my 14' poles or my 8' poles
and 20# or 25# string
and most of the time im using half or a whole perch

so i didnt know if i was the only one but i see that
catman29 uses some big fishing tackle too

the funny thing about me always going for cats i have caught some big other fish

i have caught a 9# saugeye
14# wiper easy 50#+ carp
i have hooked in to some nice tiger muskie that when they get close to shore they just blow right past me like my string is nothing

so most of the time when i go fishing for cats i take a few wipers home with me

what kinda floats do you use cat

i use the round cork ones they seem not to bother my
long cast

the styrofoam ones use to get all tangled on long casts
