    Went fishing at the Roanoke River dam early this morning with my Dad, caught probably over 50 fish total, Blue Cats and Stripers...it was a feeding frenzy and we were basically the only ones out there. It was a blast...most fish were from 3-10 pounds, then I got this one that I know is over 40 pounds, but my scale was broken so I couldn't get a definite weight. My Dad had one about the same size right up to the cliff and it broke his line.

    Thanks guys! It was definitely a great day for me, one of my biggest Blue's that I've actually landed so far. I've had some way bigger up to the bank before, but it's like a 40ft rock cliff, and it's super hard to get the fish up it, we use a big pier/drop net though.
