powerton in pekin illinois has to be one of the best places to have a chance at a dream sized blue catfish. The picture is one that i caught on 1/30/12 on cut silver carp. The fish was 3ft 5in long and had a 26in girth.I also would like to say i caught it on a Berkley Fusion 7ft medium heavy rod i bought at walmart for 40 something dollars, wich shows you dont half to spend alot of money to get the BIG ONE.
