What is your personal best rod and reel catch? Mine is this 54 lb yellow cat I caught in Clear Creek below Stone Ranch in Brown County. I was using a live perch. It was the only bite I got all day and it happened while my Dad, Brother, Uncle, and Cousins were loading up to leave. I had a brand new Red Rhino combo and the fish destroyed it. We had caught them there many times in the past just not this big. I want to say summer 1996. And for Bass this 10.22 lb, 25" girth, 25.1/4" length large mouth I caught on April 24th 2008 on Lake Georgetown on a C rig Big Bite Crawdad in 20+- feet of water.
