I went fishing at your spot again the other night and caught a bunch of eels, brown bullhead, and this 22 inch monster. When I first hooked him, he fought hard. I thought I had a striper. 10PM seemed to be the sweet spot. I couldn't leave a rod alone without getting a bite. If a rod wasn't shuddering from a catfish, that meant that I had an eel (and those dang things swallow my circle hooks and don't stop squirming long enough to dehook)

 

Was this a channel cat or a very large white cat? The anal fin is rounded and the tail isn't deeply forked, so it doesn't look like a channel to me. Had a really wide bulbous head. (size 13 shoe for size comparison)

I'm not sure if I caught the same one again or if there are a bunch of big whites in there. I went again last Saturday and caught another one similarly sized. I didn't measure the one I caught on Saturday though.
