Caught this beast on a tigernut/pink corn combo this afternoon before storms rolled in. 38 lbs!

Thank you, man. No kidding, when I was trying to hoist her out with the net, she swatted her tail and nearly pulled me in. Lol. Powerful.

I believe that. What people forget is, the fish weight alone does not account for the additional thickness of water. Meaning, this adds to their weight and power and total strength, water is thicker then air and the fish use the thickness of the water as counter weight respectively to pull harder - these fish can drag you around on boats no problem.. I had myself pulled across half a lake.. not just once..
