    My wife and I had a great first trip of the year this past weekend. In total we caught just over 170 pounds of Blue catfish! We started Saturday evening with my wife's 30 pounder and then I got a 48. On Sunday we caught a number of blues ranging from 12-17 pounds. The trip ended with my 55 lb. 8 oz. PB. It fought really hard and was the end of an action packed weekend. Now I have my wife beat by 1/2 pound! Looks like time has turned the tide:smile2: All fish were released.

    '08 is looking good for you already.
