    When you're fishing open water like most people do for bluecats you'd be surprised what you can get in with 30lb line. I've caught sharks 250lb+ on 30lb line in Florida. I know a bunch of trophy catfish guys that use smaller 30-40lb line on their rigs because of the amount of line they can cram on a reel, and play the drag. Think about it this way..if you're using a penn reel that will hold 400 yards of 30lb mono line, then you have more room to play a fish than if you were using 80lb mono which would be less than half that capacity. Keep in mind a lot of people don't use braided super line either. I am one, for example, that uses mono the majority of the time. Don't get me wrong, I fish heavy cover so I use the heaviest mono I can get away with, but then again I'm probing log jams for monster flatheads, not drifting open water for big blues. Just saying that a fish that size on a high quality 30lb line is entirely possible.

    I have had my hands on a blue cat in the 115 range and them things are strong. I couldn't imagine another 30 pounds.

    Haha if you noodling in pinopolis i wouldnt doubt that something ripped your arm off, it was probably about 12 foot long green and would weight about 800 pounds. Anyone that noodles anywhere in sc has some serious kahones!

    I'm confused, the current world record was caught at Kerr and was 143lbs last year. So maybe he tied the record.
