Made a trip to Lake Bouef this past Sunday. Ended up locking into this monster. Caught a few punching thick mats, but this one hit a chatterbait in about 2 ft. if water. I was throwing a 1/2oz. shad /with paddle tail trailer. Not only did she smoke the chatterbait, she had about a 12' catfish in her throat she was still digesting. It was a great catch. She was released to hopefully bring back the genes for following seasons. She weighed 7.12 lbs.
