30 Lbs. of Catfish Caught in 40 Minutes from a Private Pond Using TopCat Dough Bait

A lot more time was spent cleaning these cats than catching them. It took 3 men, 4 rods and reels (one broke in half), about 8 ounces of my secret catfish dough bait and 1 hour to catch them. And, it took me more than twice that long to process them. But we had fun!

Too bad we were too busy catching the catfish to catch the catch on film. (wait! ... say that again?)

Well, there's always next time, right?
