    For the 4th time this summer I either didnt think about looking at the current archery records to see if their was a record or didnt bother with weighing a fish. Mini is bout to kill me after today!! lol

    First was a July 1st sauger/saugeye that we later found out there wasnt a current archery record. lol


    After that was a shovelnose sturgeon but no pic.

    Next belly flop of mine was a 53in flathead that I didnt think was big enough to weigh. lol


    Today was the best one yet, I had no idea there wasnt a current archery record for a blue cat. lol


    From shattered arrow shafts, to his bow being ripped from his hand today...your not gonna hear mini complain about the low water in the platte this year.

    Best to start paying attention, I'd say. I should take my own advice though. A couple of years ago, I shot a blue cat and figured it was just a channel without the spotting. Ten years ago, I deliberated whether I wanted a record creek chub or not (frankly it sounded like something dn would do) and left one lay on a Republican River sandbar. That big assed sucker so long ago I forget the details is another sad tale.

    For future reference: I have a state record application for a sauger taken by bow-fishing sitting on my desk right now. That fish was 3 1/2 pounds and just eye-balling the pictures, it looks bigger than the one above.

    No, we do not have a bow-fishing blue cat record on the books at all.

    Now that I'm really paying attention, mini scored another nice flathead this afternoon. I knew it was close but once the tape only read 46in I knew it wasn't quite big enough, 44lbs.

    Mini kinda has these big cats dialed in right now. It's hilarious how he's getting them, part dumb luck and part knowing where they should be holding.
