Lake Norman Monster Sighting

Halfway to Dam – 2012-06-22

I never heard about this monster until now and it explains something that happened in 1998. I was fishing about halfway to the dam, just about to bottom, I figure 90′ when I got a hit on my line. I had a stout pole and 30lb test on. Line went flying off the reel. I fought it for about 1minute then the lone broke. I’ve always said to myself that had to be one big catfish. And I have seen the very big in the Colorado river in arizona before. Now I know what I had on my line.
