    Went back north for a few hours fishin'. Fished 6 1/2 hours and caught 14 cats. Caught 10 1/2# and 15 1/2# flatties and 12 nice blues. Again, our average weight was 10 to 11#. Water temperature was 44.5 degrees with wind out of the north/west. The wind got stiffer as the day wore on. All fish were caught on threadfin and gizzard shad. We caught the first 9 fish anchored. They went into a frenzy for a few minutes and at one time we had 3 flopping on the floor of the boat at the same time. When the bite tapered off, we decided to drift a while. Not wanting to change my rigs out, we drifted with 3 ounce no roll sinkers rather than the slinkys. They drifted just as well as the slinky weights and we has zero hangups. Caught 5 drifting. Countryboy79 was anchored beside us and he caught a PILE of fish too! Man, that dude can fish! Bait was everywhere! Now, if I can just learn to make that new 7 foot net open up, we'll be in good shape! :smile2::confused2::smile2:
