    i had the privlage to meet and fish with a fellow BOC brother yesterday,"koondawg".you couldn't ask for a nicer person to fish with.he was kind enough to take me to one of his honey holes on our home lake and put us on some nice cats.we started out the day filling his grayline bait tank with some big shad,then it was time to motor up through the timber to a nice piece of real estate that he got a 30+ lb cat out of last week.we just got all the rods set out with some nice chuncks of fresh shad,when the first rod set out bent over double and started peeling drag.after it was done and over with,my biggest blue cat to date was in the boat! man what a day! all i can say is thanks jeff,(YOU DA MAN!)i sure enjoyed it!!!......i just wanted to share a little bit about the great day i had,and tell about a new friend i made.

    That's one heck of a fish, and they're right, that looks bigger than 30 lbs.
