    fished yesterday afternoon and this morning below cannelton dam and flat wore em out(or they wore me out more like it!) ! i got there around 5:30 yesterday and fished til about 9:00. i caught 14 blues between 5 and 16 pounds. had and 11.7, 13.5, and a 16.6. kept the ones under 10 and under except the 11.7 but i did release a couple smaller fish. had one on that got me tangled in the rocks and i had to break him off. also missed several fish cause my rods would double over at the same time on a couple of occasions. they were still biting when i left. went back this morning and caught 8 more including a 31.2 pounder! i only kept 5 of the ones today. oh and i caught probably 100 or so white and stripe bass trying to catch skip jacks! they had just released a bunch into the river they were all small but were fun to catch especially when you catch 3 at a time! i did catch a bunch of skips too. thats what i caught all the cats on. it seems i have burnt my electric fillet knife up so i gotta go to the wal and get another one! here are some pics.
