They tell me they grow a foot a year, well to a point....they get as big as 150 lbs or so.
Record in Missouri last year was 147. We snag for
them every year. Very addicting. Use big rig, 90lb test line, 10/0 treble and 6 or 8 ounce sinker....hook above sinker about 20 inches or so. Throw it out and "jerk" like yer gonna hook something. And GREAT eating guys. They are not on the list for extinction yet.....Ok and Mo and
the Mississippi has loads of em......caught 12 last spring myself.
