I have had LMB in the 5-8 lb range suck in sunnies I had on fly and scare the crap out of me but never a cat.
I have caught a few nice cat when targeting sunnies and bass. So much so now I look for them, in the spring especially.
one from last summer caught on a redfish fly.

This one I was fishing my white Cyclops for bass on a 5wt rod. Not sure how big it was but it bottomed out a 15lb boga grip.
Having a fish go into backing is rarely an indication of the fish's size. A light tippet, poor drag on a reel, river currents that may be carrying the fish, etc. will all pull your drag out. Great catch though, congratulations.
I've got a few folders with photos of flies, these get more updates than my videos:

I've caught them several times, just the one from that pond was an albino. I have caught 2 in the last week while bass/crappie fishing with the fly rod. Both of them were small, though. I've accidentally hooked some good ones swinging streamers in rivers for smallies, and several in ponds while stripping streamers for bass. They always put up a great fight!
